DIKUCTOR'S  FOREV/ORD 


The  year  just  ended  was  one  of  accomplishment,  one  bristling  with 
import  for  the  future,  and  one  not  v/ithout  controversy.  The  event  v/ith 
perhaps  the  most  far-reaching  effect  was  the  imposition  of  a general 
admissions  fee  to  the  Iluseums  for  the  first  time  ever  which  began  to  be 
collected  in  December.  After  meeting  the  cost  of  collecting  the  admissions, 
one-half  of  the  additional  revenue  goes  to  support  the  Museiams'  needs,  the 
other  half  provides  a new  source  of  revenue  for  the  City.  Attendance  to 
date  is  down  by  over  a third  and  the  effect  on  public  relations  v/as  pre- 
dictable, The  Museums  have  received  letters  of  protest  and  questions  of 
alternatives  have  been  raised,  but  perhaps  the  best  that  can  be  said  about 
the  policy  at  this  point,  is  that  it  is  too  early  to  adequately  evaluate. 

Since  admissions  are  directly  affected  by  the  Museums^  programs  wliich 
fluctuate  in  popularity,  it  may  take  two  to  three  years  before  we 
thoroughly  understand  the  effects  of  the  policy. 

Certainly  the  most  exciting  news  of  the  year  was  that  the  Trustees  had 
raised  the  money,  million  dollars  to  undertake  the  first  major  renovation 

to  the  de  Young  Museum  building  since  the  completion  of  the  Brundage  ^'^.ng 
ten  years  ago.  Over  half  the  year  was  spent  on  the  architectural  and 
engineering  planning  for  the  construction  which  began  in  March.  An  estimated 
completion  date  is  projected  from  early  to  mid-1977*  The  elaborate 
preparations  to  clear  the  space  for  the  renovation  are  described  in  the 
Assistant  Directors’,  Registrar’s,  and  the  Art  School  Reports.  Great  thanlcs 
go  to  Tom  Seligman,  Fred  Snov/den  and  their  team  of  assistants  who  took  on 
additional  duties  to  accomplish  this  onerous  task.  The  effect  on  the  Art 
School  was  nothing  less  than  traumatic.  Classes  at  the  Museum  ceased 
temporarily  and  the  School  moved  to  a nev;  location.  The  Downtown  Center 
v/as  the  result,  '^th  a nev/  audience,  new  kinds  of  classes,  an  exhibition 
program,  and  in  spite  of  increased  operating  costs,  the  possibility  of  a 
future  after  the  School  returns  to  the  Museum.  The  renovation  itself  is 
fully  described  elsev/here,  but  tv/o  very  important  points  must  be  emphasized. 
Upon  completion  of  the  suite  of  conservation  laboratories  for  paintings, 
fumit-ure,  textiles  (emphasizing  tapestries)  along  vri.th  the  newly  established 
regional  conservation  laboratory  for  v/orks  of  art  on  paper  at  the  Legion  of 
Honor,  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  soon  v/ill  have  one  of  the  best  museum  conser'/’- 
ation  facilities  in  the  country.  The  Museums’  fine  collection  of  American 
paintings,  the  Legion  of  Honor  and  de  Young  Museums  collections  wliich  were 
combined  after  the  merger  of  the  Museums  but  inadequately  housed,  at  last 
will  have  appropriate  exhibition  space  in  a new  suite  of  American  Galleries. 
These  galleries  are  a Bicentennial  gift  to  the  Museum  from  the  many  donors 
who  responded  to  the  challenge  of  the  Merrill  Trust’s  matching  grant  and 
funds  provided  by  the  bequest  of  William  Noble.  Conceptual  planning  for 
the  galleries  got  under*way  v/ith  the  impetus  coming  from  the  Education 
Division  and  the  curatorial  staff  who  decided  we  could  do  better  than  just 
hang  the  pictures  on  the  wall. 


- 1 - 


'Hie  major  Bicentennial  exliibition  was  the  American  paintings  collection 
of  and  fh's.  Jolm  D.  Rockefeller  3i*d.  The  exliibition  was  critized  by  a 
ft'w  for  not  being  a survey  of  American  art,  which  it  never  intended  to  be, 

Init  otherwise  was  enthusiastically  received  and  accompanied  by  the  most 
elaborate  and  innovative  educational  programs  yet  undertaken  by  the  Museums, 
'ihe  exliibition  procirnm  generally  was  marked  by  its  diversity,  including 
such  chows  created  by  the  museum  staff  as  the  Lewis  Land  collection  of 
Pre-Columbian  sculpture  (AOA  Department),  a Food  Show  and  a Foot  Show  (Art 
School),  two  elegant  exliibitions  for  local  sculptors,  Sam  Richardson  and 
Robert  Cremean  (Tom  Carver)  and  the  unexpected  boon  of  Master  Paintings 
from  tlie  Hermitage  and  the  State  Russian  Museum.  Attendance  at  the  latter 
was  severely  curtailed  when  the  Museums  were  closed  by  a citywide  strike. 
Nonetheless,  95,295  people  paid  to  enjoy  such  pictures  as  Caravaggio's 
"Lute  Player",  Rembrandt's  "Sasld.a  as  Flora",  tv/o  early  large  scale  Matisses, 
a pair  of  monumental  Picassos  and  thirteen  examples  of  the  indigenous 
Russian  School  of  painting.  In  January,  a nev/  hanging  of  the  Norton  Simon 
French  Collection  was  presented  at  the  Legion  of  Honor  with  important  new 
paintings  added,  a reinstallation  v/hich  celebrated  the  publication  of 
Volume  II  of  the  collection  catalogue.  The  paintings  moved  to  Pasadena 
in  June  as  expected,  completing  the  agreed  three  year  loan,  certainly  one 
of  the  most  significant  in  the  life  of  the  museum. 

A flurry  of  exhibitions  and  activity  was  generated  by  Robert  Johnson, 
the  new  Cijirator  in  Charge  of  the  Prints  and  Drawings  Department,  the  Achen- 
bach  Foimdation  for  Graphic  Art.  It  is  a great  relief  and  pleasure  after 
a long  search  to  have  this  important  post  so  well  filled.  Conservator  Roy 
Perlcinson  returned  to  Boston  in  June  after  establishing  the  Paper  Conservation 
Laboratory  as  a regional  facility  in  two  years  as  he  had  promised  to  do. 
Although  anticipated,  it  was  a loss.  It  was  typical,  however,  of  this 
competent  and  conscientious  person  that  he  left  the  laboratory  in  the  hands 
of  a well-trained  and  promising  successor,  Robert  FuterrJ.ck,  Lanier  Graham's 
resignation  at  raid-year  after  six  years  as  Chief  Curator,  was  also  a loss, 
if  an  inevitable  one.  During  his  tenure  his  primary  accomplishments  v;ere 
the  reorganization  of  the  collection  by  national  school  and  the  institution 
of  a professional  publications  program,  not  only  exliibition  but  collection 
catalogues.  A number  were  v/ritten  by  Lanier  himself,  others  by  various 
staff  members  and  a few  by  visiting  guest  curators.  The  pace  was  ambitious 
and  eventually  overwhelming  for  one  person.  In  part,  the  solution  to  the 
problem  has  been  to  divide  the  burden  of  the  job  by  creating  a new  position 
of  Publications  Manager  funded  by  the  Museum  Society,  In  this  capacity, 
the  production  of  the  publications  is  being  handled  capably  by  Ned  Engle. 

During  the  last  several  months,  great  strides  have  been  made  in  the  area 
of  personnel  and  administration  and  the  credit  goes  to  Ron  Egherman  v/ho 
has  brought  to  the  job  a measure  of  creative  thinking  which  has  been  missing 
for  many  years  from  this  area  of  museum  operations.  One  of  the  accomplish- 
ments of  the  year  was  recognizing  the  considerable  potential  of  volunteer 
assistance  available  to  the  Museums,  organising  it  and  utilizing  it  in  a 
broad  spectrum  of  tasks.  A by-product  of  the  effort  was  the  organising  and 
writing  of  the  Volunteer  Handbook  of  policies,  regulations  and  practices 
for  the  operation  of  the  Museimis.  Chuck  Mills  was  largely  resporjsible  for 
compiling  this  information  which  also  formed  the  basis  of  Joanne  Backman's 
work  on  a similar  employees  handbook  which  we  expect  to  publish  next  year. 


- ii  - 


Important  also  was  the  isstiing  of  a written  Acquisition  Policy  for  works  of 
art  developed  by  the  Acquisition  Committee  on  the  recommendation  of  staff 
and  approved  by  the  Board  of  Trmistees,  At  the  request  of  the  Museum  Society, 
a study  was  imdertaken  jointly  by  the  Art  Department  of  Stanford  University 
and  the  Stanford  Law  School  resulting  in  a Curatorial  Code  of  Ethics.  The 
study  deals  not  only  with  the  specific  question  of  fees  and  royalties  to  be 
paid  to  curators  for  their  publications  but  with  the  broader  subject  of  the 
ethics  of  curatorial  behavior,  Althougli  the  Museums  have  not  adopted  any 
of  the  recommendations  of  the  study  as  yet,  the  work  was  brought  to  the 
attention  of  the  museum  profession  by  the  Association  of  Art  Museum  Directors 
at  its  annual  meeting  in  June. 

A very  profound  issue  came  under  discussion  concerning  the  role  of  the 
Docent  Council  in  the  reorganization  of  the  Education  Division,  namely  the 
autonomy  of  a volunteer  organization.  The  problem  was  not  resolved  at  the 
end  of  the  reporting  period  but  the  indication  was  clear  that  the  Board  of 
Trustees  sets  the  policies  for  the  Museums  and  the  volimteer  organizations 
such  as  the  well  established  Docent  Council  or  the  newly  established  Bay  Area 
Graphic  Arts  Council  would  have  to  adjust  their  bylaws  to  be  in  step  with 
the  policies  of  the  Board  of  Trustees. 

A great  deal  of  progress  was  made  in  getting  out  the  story  of  the  Museums, 
most  noticeably  in  establishing  a degree  of  rapport  vn.th  City  Hall  which  the 
M-useums  have  never  enjoyed  before.  The  very  tangible  positive  result  was  a 
modest  increase  in  the  annual  operating  budget  which  included  several  much 
needed  new  positions.  In  the  Spring  the  Museums  agreed  to  the  demands  of 
the  Art  Workers  Coalition  to  participate  in  an  unprecedented  meeting  in  which 
the  Museums  would  discuss  their  policies  in  an  open  forum.  In  preparation 
for  the  meeting  planned  for  early  July,  the  staff  compiled  a descriptive  and 
statistical  profile  of  the  institution.  In  this  continuing  process  of  self- 
evaluation  and  repoi*tage,  greater  and  expanded  use  of  this  Anniial  Report  is 
contemplated.  Principal  credit  for  the  more  readable  format  goes  to  its 
editor,  Ned  Engle.  Its  production  has  been  well  executed  as  usual  by 
Earl  Anderson.  I hope  the  report  is  a fair  indication  of  i\7hat  continues 
in  my  opinion  to  be  a very  dynamic  department.

DEPARKffiNT  OF  ^^JTRICA,  OCEAiaA  AM)  THE  AlfflRICAS 


This  year,  the  major  efforts  of  the  department  have  been  directed  tov/ards 
the  creative  utilization,  development,  maintenance,  and  interpretation  of 
our  collections.  To  this  end,  we  have  presented  five  exhibitions,  completed 
two  major  permanent  gallery  reinstallations,  added  over  400  objects  to  our 
permanent  collection,  and  endeavored  to  explore  a number  of  new  interpretive 
approaches  and  educational  programs. 

Exhibitions 


The  year  began  in  July  va.th  the  opening  of  'Fire,  Earth  and  V/ater: 

Sculpture  from  the  Land  Collection  of  Mesoamerican  Art  a major  exhibition 
at  the  ualifornia  Palace  of  the  Legion  of  Honor  whicbTincluded  over  l4o 
objects,  a fully  illustrated  l4o-page  catalogue  with  scholarly  essays,  an 
audio-visual  presentation  explaining  the  cultural  context  from  which  the 
objects  came,  extensive  labels  which  challenged  people  to  draw  their  own 
conclusions  about  the  objects  before  them  (after  receiving  clues  as  to  ivhat 
they  might  mean) , and  an  atmospheric  installation  evoking  Maya  architect-ure 
and  environment.  Docent  tours  were  given  six  days  a \7eek  and  several 
musical  programs  v/ere  planned  around  the  exhibition,  Tlie  catalogues  sold 
out  and  the  exhibition  proved  so  successful  that  it  wels  extended  until 
December.  It  was  circulated  to  the  Honolulu  Academy  of  Arts,  and  then  to 
the  Seattle  Art  Museum, 

In  October,  an  exhibition  celebrating  the  Mexican  Day  of  the  Dead  was  on 
view  in  our  Introductory  Gallery;  it  included  a simulated  Oaxacan  altar, 
a number  of  religious  objects  and  offerings,  examples  of  special  candies 
and  breads,  and  a variety  of  children*s.  toys  and  games  (75  objects  total). 
Labels  relating  the  customs,  history  and  significance  of  the  celebration 
were  written  by  Yolanda  V/oo,  owner  of  the  collection.  A poster  was  designed 
to  publicize  the  exhibition. 

A cross-cultural  exhibition  of  jewelry  followed  in  the  Introductory  Gallery 
space’  in  February,  which  included  over  8o  objects  primarily  dra\ni  from  the 
Museum’s  ovm  collections.  The  labels  in  this  exhibition  took  a rather  novel 
interpretive  view,  encouraging  people  to  think  about  some  of  their  o’^m 
motivations  for  wearing  jewelry,  the  variety  of  materials  from  which  jewelry 
can  be  made,  where  it  can  be  i/orn,  and  the  feelings  that  a particular  piece 
of  jewelry  might  inspire, 

A new  exhibition  space  was  created  by  covering  a wall  in  Gallery  H with 
dark  brown  burlap  to  permit  changing  exhibitions  of  tv/o-dimensional  objects 
which  relate  to  our  permanent  collection,  T-wo  photographic  exhibitions  by 
Bay  Area  artists  took  place  this  year,  'Photographs  of  V/est  Africa  by 
Lucas  Kiers  included  21  superb  black  and  v/hite  photographs  of  v.'est  "African 
people  showing  cultural  continuity  and  change.  The  Otavalo  ' by  Benna 
Kolinsky  was  a different  kind  of  exhibition  - a photo  essay  documenting 
the  traditional  life  processes  of  an  Ecuador  Indian  group  ;d.th  which  she 
lived.  The  51  photographs  were  grouped  according  to  themes,  and  exter^sive 
labels  were  provided  which  documented  traditional  ciILture  and  change:  a 
personal  view  as  seen  by  Benna  Kolinsky  in  197^,

AFRICA « OCTANIA  APID  THE  ATiEniCAS  (continued) 


Two  major  reinstallations  took  place  in  oiir  permanent  gallery  this  year, 
and  v/e  are  gradually  replacing  loan  objects  with  new  acquisitions.  In 
July,  five  cases  were  changed  in  the  Precolumbian  section,  and  37  new 
objects  were  added.  In  August,  sijc  more  cases  v/ere  reworked  (Southwest, 
Eastern  Guinea  Coast,  Yoruba,  Guinea  Coast  - Ivory  Coast,  Peru,  and 
Polynesia)  and  over  20  new  objects  were  installed.  Both  times  the  label 
panels  were  largely  rewritten  to  accommodate  new  changes,  and  in  the  process 
a new  system  for  label  production  was  developed  in  conjunction  with  our 
Graphic  Design  Department. 

This  year  we  also  utilized  the  seating  area  of  the  permanent  gallery  to 
display  textiles  from  each  of  the  four  major  culture  areas  ive  represent, 
and  we  have  also  maintained  our  Recent  Acquisitions  case. 

Collections 


This  year  we  have  been  very  conscious  both  of  seeldng  new  objects  to  fill 
gaps  in  the  collection  and  of  utilizing  our  existing  collection  in  the  most 
beneficial  way  possible.  V/e  have  received  over  100  donations  this  year, 
plus  a collection  of  over  370  goldv;eights  from  A.frica«  V/e  have  made  several 
exchanges  with  galleries  and  museums  to  trade  deaccessioned  objects  (for 
which  v;e  have  duplicates)  for  items  that  v;e  do  not  have.  Exchanges  have 
talcen  place  vn.th  the  Lowie  liuseum  of  Anthropology,  The  James  V/illis  Gallery 
and  Galleiy  Anushlca  in  Amsterdam. 

V/ith  the  extensive  help  of  the  Registration  Department  we  have  inventoried 
and  catalogued  over  16gO  Precolumbian  objects  of  minimal  aesthetic  or 
archaeological  value,  and  loaned  them  on  a long-term  basis  to  the  San 
Francisco  Unified  School  District  where  they  will  be  used  in  classroom 
study  kits.  V/e  have  also  given  objects  to  oin*  School  Program  for  use  by 
cur  docents. 

Collection  maintenance,  research  and  documentation  continued.  For  example, 
a new  system  for  storing  small  items  such  as  goldweights  v;as  devised  and 
implemented.  Since  we  have  received  so  many  donations,  we  have  made  a con- 
certed effort  to  update  our  photographic  and  slide  records. 

Prof?rams,  Planning,  and  On-going  Research 

In  conjunction  vn.th  the  Environmental  Science  Center  of  the  San  Francisco 
Unified  School  District  and  our  Docent  Coordinator,  a program  was  planned 
wherein  8 gifted  9th  grade  students  v/ere  trained  to  give  tours  to  elementary 
school  children.  During  the  months  of  February  and  March,  these  tours 
reached  over  27  classes.  The  focus  of  these  tours  v/as  animals  and  environ- 
ment, with  an  "African  Safari"  theme.  Evaluations  of  the  program  by  par- 
ticipants and  teachers  were  positive.

AFRICA,  OCSANIA  AKD  THE  AMSKCCAS  (Continued) 


A film  supported  hj  National  Endowment  for  the  Humanities  on  a Pomo  basket- 
maker,  Alice  Elliott,  was  finally  completed  this  year,  and  v;on  a national 
film  award.  Fne  film  is  being  used  by  our  school  docents  and  we  hope  even- 
tually to  make  it  available  to  school  districts. 

We  continue  to  receive  enthusiastic  responses  and  requests  for  the  Intro- 
ductory Gallery  audio-visual  program.  This  year  v/e  compiled  an  information 
sheet  which  is  sent  out  to  interested  people,  on  the  music  used  in  the  shew, 
V/e  have  also  compiled  a guide  to  Bay  Area  galleries  concerned  with  ethnic 
art  that  v/e  send  out  upon  inquiry. 

Research  and  planning  was  initiated  for  an  exhibition  of  Huichol  Indian  art 
to  complement  the  Musemn's  collection.  Material  was  previewed  in  the  Smith- 
sonian film  archives,  as  were  Huichol  collections  in  New  York,  New  Mexico 
and  California.  Several  funding  sources  were  approached  and  a number  of 
scholars  were  contacted.

One  major  difficulty  this  department  has  faced  since  its  inception  has  been 
staffing.  The  Museum  Society  alleviated  the  problem  on  a temporary  basis 
by  providing  funds  for  a full-time  Assistant  Curator.  This  position  v/as 
needed  for  the  continued  maintenance  of  the  department.  Projects  which 
otherwise  v/ould  not  be  accomplished  are  planned  for  the  coming  year.

DEPAETOENT  OF  EXI-IIBITIOUS 


The  Department  of  Exliibitions  is  responsible  for  all  aspects  of  the  physical 
installation  of  works  of  art,  both  temporary  exliibitions  cvnd  permanent  gallery 
installations,  in  the  Museums.  In  addition,  the  Department  worlcs  vn.th  the 
Education  Department  to  coordinate  the  production  and  use  of  interpretative 
material  prepared  for  e:d'.ibition  use.  The  Department  also  works  with  other 
departments  in  the  preparation  of  catalogue  materials  and  maintains  the  master 
exhibition  schedule  for  several  years  in  advance.  The  Department  may  also  be 
responsible  for  the  direct  organization  of  temporary  exhibitions.  The  Depart- 
ment is  involved  vn.th  the  supervision  of  lighting  and  arcliitectiaral  changes 
for  temporary  and  permanent  exhibition  spaces  in  both  buildings. 

During  the  Fiscal  Year  1975-1976  the  Department  of  Exhibitions  was  involved 
with  the  planning,  coordinating  and  mounting  of  33  temporary  exhibitions,  in 
addition  to  re-installations  of  some  of  the  museums’  peivnanent  galleries. 

Two  of  the  exhibitions.  Master  Paintings  from  the  Hermitage  and  State  Russian 
Museum,  Leningrad,  and  American  Art:  An  Exhibition  from  the  Collection  of 
Mr.  and  Mrs.  John  D.  Rockefeller  3rd  required  the  greatest  amount  of  space, 
time,  and  staff  energy  in  organizing  and  planning.  It  v/as  anticipated  that 
the  collection  from  the  Hermitage  and  State  Russian  Museum  would  attract  the 
largest  crov/ds,  but  the  unexpected  City  craft  v/orkers  strike  forced  the  museum 
to  close  for  a time  and  curtailed  public  transportation. 

The  most  noticeable  change  in  our  permanent  galleries  v/as  the  opening  of  the 
English  Rooms  at  the  de  Young.  Although  the  Classical  Gallery  (Gallery  One) 
v/as  scheduled  to  open  this  year,  the  strain  of  our  active  exhibition  schedule 
forced  the  delay  of  this  project  which  now  will  open  in  September  1976. 

Some  improvements  were  made  to  the  deteriorating  physical  plants,  v/ith  a new 
lighting  system  iristalled  in  Gallery  13  at  The  California  Palace  of  the  Legion 
of  Honor.  The  floors  in  the  de  Young’s  temporary  exhibition  v/ing  were  stripped, 
sanded,  and  stained,  and  all  of  the  ceilings  v/ere  painted.  The  addition  of 
ten  modules  to  our  stock  of  exliibition  furniture  became  necessary,  as  the 
size  and  scope  of  the  exhibitions  increased.  The  completely  revised  system 
of  internal  musevim  graphics  is  undervi/ay,  with  a scheduled  debut  in  August 
1976.  The  museums  galleries  ;d.ll  be  more  clearly  identified  and  keyed  to  a 
map  available  in  each  museum. 

The  small  but  vigorous  exhibition  program  of  contemporary  Bay  Area  art 
continued  as  we  instituted  a series  of  programs  called  "Meet  the  Artist” 
in  which  an  artist  appeared  in  the  galleries  to  speak  informally  vnth  museum 
visitors  and  ansv/er  questions  about  his  or  her  art. 

An  information  packet  about  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  of  San  Francisco  v/as 
researched  and  prepared  by  Susan  Levitin  (Assistant  Curator  of  Sxhibitiorjs) 
and  Susan  Melim  (Administrative  Assistant)  for  a meeting  with  the  Artv/orkers 
Coalition,  It  v/as  the  first  time  a definitive  "balance  sheet”  for  the  museums 
had  been  made  public  dealing  v/ith  their  governance,  funding,  staffing  and 
programs.

DSPAl^-lTnuIT  OF  ILvHIBITIONS  (Continued) 


T)ie  Depai'tmoiit  is  pleased  to  armoiuice  the  creation  of  a new  City-f-unded 
position  for  the  Assistant  Curator  of  Exliibitions , thus  relieving  the  Museum 
Society  of  the  financial  burden.  The  funding  for  this  position,  held  by 
Suscui  Levitin,  \^dll  begin  July  1,  1976.  Michael  Cox  xvas  appointed  to  the 
new  part-time  position  of  Exliibition  Manager,  created  by  the  Museiim  Society, 
Beginning  August  1st  he  will  serve  as  liaison  person  and  coordinator  for 
all  museum  installations. 

Adequate  staffing  remains  our  most  critical  problem.  Our  small  crew  of  five 
Preparators,  assisted  on  a temporary  basis  by  a C.E.T.A,  employee,  is  res- 
ponsible for  installing  exhibitions  in  over  100,000  square  feet  of  gallery 
space.  As  the  exhibition  program  escalates  in  quantity  and  content,  the 
sise  of  our  prepara torial  crew  has  become  so  glaringly  inadequate  that  it 
has  been  necessary  to  hire  additional  crew  members  on  a temporary  basis 
from  exhibition  to  exhibition.  The  need  for  ne\j  preparator  positions  must 
be  acknowledged  as  one  of  the  most  crucial  problems  to  resolve  in  the  coming 
year, 

A listing  of  the  temporary  exhibitions  mounted  in  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  of 
San  Francisco  follows.

DEP*y^TI”lENT  0?  PAINTING  SCULPTIIRS 


Durinc  'the  year  1975-1976  Vol.  II  of  the  catalogtie  of  the  Norton  Simon  loan 
was'  completed.  Tliis  publication,  becun  in  1975 1 catalogues  and  illustrates 
52  paintings  in  addition  to  the  worlcs  included  in  Vol,  I,  It  became  avail- 
able at  the  opening  of  the  third  and  last  installation  of  the  Simon  collection 
which  opened  January  22,  1976,  As  of  the  closing  of  the  period  of  this  report, 
preparations  have  been  made  for  the  return  of  the  collection  after  the  exhibit- 
ion closed  on  June  27,  1976. 

Simultaneously,  planning  was  under  way  for  the  re-installation  of  the  Simon 
galleries  with  19th  century  material  from  our  French  collections.  Included 
in  the  installation  will  be  decorative  arts  and  sculpture  as  well  as  paint- 
ings. 

A survey  was  made  of  all  paintings  in  the  Museums'  collections  to  classify 
them  as  being  of  exhibition  quality,  for  study  collections  or  recommended 
for  ’’de-accessioning”. 

In  cooperation  xd.th  the  registration  dep£irtment,  numerous  loan  requests  for 
art  works  \/ere  processed.  This  involved  the  recommendation  to  the  Board  of 
Trustees  as  to  the  granting  of  a loan,  the  arrangements  for  condition  reports 
from  the  conservation  department  and  the  determination  of  values  for  insurance 
purposes. 

Effective  January  31*  1976,  F.  Lanier  Graham,  Chief  Curator  and  Curator-in- 
Charge  of  the  Painting  Department,  resigned.  V/illiam  H,  Eisner,  Ciirator  in 
the  department,  was  named  Acting-Curator  in  charge.  Mr,  Graham,  who  had  held 
his  position  in  the  department  since  May  1970,  re-organized  the  housing  of  the 
collections  on  the  basis  of  "school".  Thus  all  v;orks  of  French  origin  are  nov; 
housed  at  the  California  Palace  of  the  Legion  of  Honor  v/hile  all  other  schools 
are  housed  at  the  M,  H,  de  Young  Memorial  Museum.

PAIIITIIIG  COMSEPVATION  L;U30r?iiT0RY 


One  of  the  major  accomplishments  of  the  laboratory  was  the  special  exhibition 
about  painting  conservation  at  the  de  Young  Tiasterpiece  Gallery  from 
November  1975  to  April  1976.  Based  on  the  recently  completed  restoration 
by  this  department  of  Lucretia  by  Joos  van  Cleve,  it  presented  didactic 
material  and  photographs  of  the  different  aspects  of  painting  conservation 
to  acquaint  the  public  v;ith  the  principles  and  practice  of  museum  painting 
conservation.  Tliis  is  the  first  time  in  the  Museums’  histo2ry  that  such 
material  was  made  available  to  the  public;  the  response  of  the  public  and 
the  press  was  very  favorable,  and  it  has  been  requested  for  loan  by  another 
museum. 

The  planning  for  the  new  lab  and  the  purchasing  of  additional  equipment 
(from  National  Endowment  for  the  Arts  funds)  v/ere  given  priority  in 
anticipation  of  the  move  next  year,  Ne\7  equipment  has  been  put  to  good 
use  in  the  complete  technical  and  analytical  examination  of  paintings, 
including  those  being  considered  for  major  treatment  and  acquisition,  and 
the  recently  acquired  paintings  from  the  Rose  Magnin  bequest.  Detailed 
examination  consists  of  visual,  microscopic  and  analytical  examination  and 
documentation,  including  the  use  of  ultraviolet,  infrared  and  x-rays. 

For  each  loan  exhibition  during  the  year  (Rockefeller,  Russian,  Norton 
Simon  collection) , paintings  had  to  be  thoroughly  ir^pected  for  condition 
upon  arrival  .■&  'departure,  with  frequent  inspections  during  their  stay  here. 
Tliis  department  is  responsible  for  any  treatment  they  may  require.  In  order 
to  minimize  the  time  v;hich  ordinarily  has  to  be  spent  on  paintings  on  loan 
that  arrive  at  the  Museums  in  poor  or  damaged  condition,  a different  procedure 
v/as  established  foi  the  Rockefeller  loan  of  American  paintings.  As  they  had 
not  been  under  a conservator’s  care,  I went  to  Nev/  York  to  inspect  and  record 
their  condition,  and  do  whatever  work  was  necessary  to  prepare  them  for 
traveling,  Tliis  no  doubt  resulted  in  a considerable  saving  of  time  and 
liability,  and  prevented  potential  harm  to  them  in  shipment. 

In  preparation  for  the  opening  of  the  American  V/ing  next  year,  major  con- 
servation v/ork  was  centered  on  our  permianent  American  paintings,  V/ork  on 
the  Magnin  paintings  v;as  started,  but  since  each  of  them  is  in  need  of 
major  treatment,  only  technical  examinations,  emergency  work  and  some  cleaning 
has  been  possible  to  date.  Lesser  treatment,  though  time-consuming  as  well, 
v;as  given  to  many  paintings;  these  were  mainly  damages  which  occurred  in  the 
museums.  In  August,  I carried  out  a survey  to  measure  light  intensity  and 
other  factors  in  both  museums  with  all  heating  and  most  artificial  lights 
turned  off. 

Since  improper  framing  can  cause  considerable  damage  to  paintings,  a project 
was  initiated  two  years  ago  to  inspect  and  correct  this  in  the  galleries. 

Due  to  lack  of  time,  this  could  only  be  done  intermittently  vm.th  the  help 
of  volunteers;  unfortunately  so  much  time  was  spent  training  and  supervising 
them  that  the  program  had  to  be  discontinued.

PAINTING  CONSERVATION  (Continued) 


As  a public  service  to  other  institutions,  I supervised  in  a pigment 
analysis  project  an  intern  from  the  Nev;  York  University  School  of  Conservation. 
I was  also  guest  lecturer  on  conse3rvation  the  past  two  years  at  seminars 
sponsored  by  the  University  of  California-Lowie  Musevim. 

Upgrading  the  department  to  today* s professional  stcindards  and  the  application 
of  modern  scientific  methods  in  the  conservation  of  paintings  has  meant  that 
the  department’s  worl-cload  has  trebled  since  1970.  Tne  department  is  oven-zorked 
and  there  is  increasingly  less  time  available  for  the  work  on  paintings  in  the 
Huseuras’  permanent  collections,  I have  estimated  that  the  amount  of-  v/ork 
necesscury  to  properly  conserve  them  (aside  from  the  normal  household  care) 
would  require  a staff  of  five  conservators  (three  painting  conservators  and 
two  technical  assistants)  for  five  years.  (The  Magnin  paintings  alone  would 
take  a conservator  several  years  to  complete).  It  is  imperative  that 
additional  help  be  given  this  department.

REGISTI?AR'S  REPORT  - M,  H.  de  Yoiing  Memorial  Museum 


The  1975-1976  fiscal  year  proved  to  be  atypical  when  compared  vd.th  past 
years  at  the  de  Young  Museum,  An  increase  in  scheduled  exhibitions,  nev/ 
departments  with  added  personnel,  the  de-accessioning  project  and  the  fact 
that  over  one-half  of  the  museum  was  under  construction  added  up  to 
unparalleled  diverse  activities  affecting  the  whole  museum  in  general  and 
the  Registrar’s  Office  in  particrular.  These  activities  may  be  divided  into 
three  sections: 

Routine  Procedures 


The  Registrar  continued  to  receipt,  number,  catalogue,  insure  safe  housing 
and  handling  of  and  return  of  all  incoming/outgoing  gifts  and  extended 
loans  to  the  permanent  collection;  arrange  for  the  pick-up,  receipt,  safe 
keeping  and  return  of  all  temporary  exhibitions;  be  responsible  for  all 
storage  facilities;  review  the  receiving,  unpacking,  crating  and  shipping 
of  all  art  objects;  maintain  the  photography  file  and  arrange  for  special 
reproduction  orders;  supervise  the  museum  vehicle  and  its  scheduling; 
and  kept  in  order  the  Accession,  Research,  Archival,  Uchibitions  and  10 
other  file  systems. 

Some  10,255  objects  in  the  above  activities  v/ere  handled  by  the  Registrar, 
assisted  in  various  degrees  by  6 graduate  student  volunteers  and  7 Docent 
Council  volunteers  working  for  limited  time  periods,  1 driver/messenger 
and  5 quasi-Registration  functionaries  (a  Curator  I in  charge  of  basement 
storage  area,  a Museum  Shipper/Packer  and  the  Museum  Photographer). 

In  addition,  the  Registrar  -personally  prepared  the  monthly  insurance 
reports;  handled  damage  and  loss  claims;  conducted  tours  of  his  depart- 
ment and  museum  facilities;  made  records  available  to  scholars,  students, 
representatives  from  other  institutions  and  qualified  individuals;  v/orked 
with  local  representative  on  Smithsonian  Institution’s  bicentennial 
project  registering  all  American  paintings  in  the  country;  ansv;ered 
written  inquiries  and  was  available,  in  the  absence  of  curators,  to 
answer  telephone  inquiries  of  a curatorial  nature;  continued  to  accompany 
the  transport  of  art  objects  of  more  than  nominal  value;  and  supervised, 
in  curators’  absences,  the  hanging  of  paintings  or  special  movement  of 
art  objects  through  the  museum. 

De-accession  Project 

David  Hyry  and  Sharon  Hanford  v/ere  hired  tharough  CSTA  in  mid  September 
1975  to  help  the  Registrar  v/ith  the  de-accession  project.  V/ork  began  on 
paintings  and  decorative  arts  items  from  the  Kress  Basement  Storage  Area 
in  6 galleries  and  hall  areas  closed  to  the  public.  In  order  to  prepare 
lists  to  present  to  the  Accessioning/De-accessioning  sub-committee  of  the 
Board  of  Trustees  vdien  they  came  to  inspect  the  objects  September  20,  1975. 
the  procedure  established  (and  used  in  the  preparation  of  subsequent  lists) 


- 17  - 


REGISTRAR'S  REPORT  - M,  H.  de  Young  Memorial  Museiara  (Continued) 


consisted  of:  checicing  each  object  to  an  accession  number;  where  a number 
e>d.stcd,  checldLng  records  for  donor,  date  of  accession  and  any  additional 
information;  and  measuring  and  describing  each  object,  \Vhere  no  numbers 
were  found,  an  arbitrary  "X"  number  v;as  assigned  to  the  piece,  and  complete 
accession  records  were  made.  The  tedious  aispects  of  the  work  and  the  frus- 
ti'ation  of  trying  to  correct  errors  made  by  former  staff  members  in  access- 
ioning records  cannot  be  emphasized  too  strongly.  The  work  v;as  time  con- 
suming and  exacting.  For  the  betterment  of  the  museum  collection,  however, 
it  vras  a job  that  needed  to  be  done,  and  it  ^^ras  v/ith  this  in  mind  that  the 
project  v;as  approached  by  those  who  v;orked  on  it. 

At  the  September  20th  meeting,  8 paintings,  5 pieces  of  furniture  and 
approximately  285  war  relics  were  approved  for  ds-accessioning  by  the 
committee,  contingent  upon  final  approval  six  months  later. 

During  the  remainder  of  1975*  42^7  pre-Columbian  objects  were  inventoried, 
catalogued,  photographed  and  listed,  V/ith  the  approval  of  T,  K.  Seligman, 
Curator  in  Charge  of  the  AOA  collection,  on  April  4,  1976,  3247  objects 
were  packed  and  sent  to  the  San  Francisco  Unified  School  District  on  long- 
term extended  loan  for  use  in  the  public  schools.  The  remaining  100 
objects  ^^^ere  left  for  de-accessioning  or  a possible  loan  to  San  Th’ancisco 
State  University,  Also,  between  April  7th  and  May  27th  some  8l5  oilental 
objects  v;ere  transferred  to  the  Asian  Art  Museum,, 

The  Spring  of  1976  was  spent  readying  objects  for  inspection  by  the  Board 
of  Trustees.  To  stage  the  inspection  properly:  Gallery  ?f9  was  stripped 
dovm  and  dressed  for  the  occasion,  special  lists  were  made,  four  Preparators 
(2  staff,  2 hired)  spent  one  day  arranging  and  the  next  day  carrying  objects 
for  viewing  by  the  committee.  Present  at  the  July  22nd  meeting  were  the 
Director,  4 members  of  the  Board  of  Trustees  sub-committee,  the  Secretary 
to  the  Board,  5 Curators,  the  Registrar,  Miss  Hanford,  acting  as  assistant 
to  the  Registrar  and  the  4 carriers,  Tlie  objects  shovm  were  some  623  weapons, 
132  paintings,  111  decorative  art  items,  175  books  and  documents,  and  297 
miscellaneous  objects.  These  items,  plus  the  ICOO  AOA  pieces,  for  a total 
of  2,338  objects,  were  given  initial  approval  for  de-accessioning  by  the 
committee  to  be  viewed  again  in  six  months  for  final  approval.  The  items 
reviewed  in  September  1975.  were  given  final  approval  at  the  Ji-ily  meeting, 

VJhen  the  Secretary  to  the  Board  filed  her  report  on  the  event,  some  36  pages 
v/ere  added  to  the  Minutes  Book  of  the  Board  of  Trustees. 

To  complete  the  project,  it  remains  to  actually  dispose  of  the  objects 
designated  for  de-accessioning  - no  small  task  in  itself  - whether  it  be 
by  public  auction  or  fair  trade  as  prescribed  by  official  City  policy. 

V/hen  this  is  done,  approximately  6,698  objects  will  have  been  removed  from 
the  museum  as  a result  of  extended  loans,  transfer  or  de-accessioning. 

There  were  7 personnel  involved  in  the  de-accessioning  project;  3 Civil 
Service,  2 CETA  employees  and  2 experienced  v-zorkers  hired  for  2 days.

REGISTRAR’S  REPORT  - M.  H.  de  Yoiing  Memorial  Museum  (Continued) 


Relocation  of  Permanent  Collection  and  Other  Museum  Property  from  Areas 

Desip:nated  for  Renovation  and  Partial  Dismantling 


In  the  Fall-  of  1975 j T,  K,  Seligman  was  assigned  direction  of  all  preparations 
at  the  de  Young  Museum  necessary  to  clear  spaces  for  remodelling  in  the 
proposed  building  renovation.  The  Registrar,  because  of  similar  experience 
at  the  Oakland  Art  Museum,  during  \7orld  War  II  and  elsewhere,  was  asked  to 
assist  in.  over-seeing  the  project. 

Four  men  were  hired  on  a contractural  basis  to  help  clear'  the  area 'and  with 
the  help  of  one  CETA  Preparator  the  project  commenced  December  15,  1975* 

Also  participating,  of  course., . were  various  staff  members  v/hose  departmental 
areas  were  affected  by  the  new  construction.  In  all,  30,798  square  feet  of 
museum  space  was  affected  by  the  renovation.  Four  used  cargo  containers, 
each  containing  1,536  cu.  ft,,  were  purchased  for  storage.  We  also  hired 
the  largest  dumpster  available,  and  by  the  time  the  piroject  reached  its 
conclusion  on  March  23,  1976  some  nine  such -open  containers  had  been  filled 
and  carried  away.  A total  of  8,308  art  objects  and  salvageable  pieces  of 
museum  property  v;ere  relocated  elsewhere  by  2 Civil  Service  personnel,  1 CETA 
employee  . and  4 experienced  workers  hired -specially  for  the  project. 

In  summation,  in  addition  to  many  activities  not  reducible  to  numbers,  the 
Registrar -processed  in  detail  some  10,255  objects  in  the  normal  routine  and 
6,698-  objects  in  the  de-accession  project  for  a total  of  16,953  items,  and 
handled  personally  - or  supervised  the  movement  of  - some  8,308  items  for  a 
total  of  25,^61  for  the  period  1975-1976,  He  xvas  assisted  in  various  degrees 
of  capacity  and  for  intermittent  time  periods  by  5 Civil  Service  personnel, 

13  volunteers,  3 CETA  employees  and  6 experienced  workers  hired  by  other 
than  City  funds  for  a total  of  2?.  "

REGISTRAR'S  PJ3?0RT  - Legion  of  lionor  (Continued) 


In  the  fall  of  1975*  International  V/omen’s  Year,  an  ezdiibition  of  art  by 
v/omen  artists  v;as  assembled  by  the  Registrar  entirely  from  the  Museums’ 
collections.  An  initial  survey  yielded  a list  of  250  rarely  shovm  art  works 
of  which  72  of  mixed  media  were  exhibited.  Volunteers  and  Docents  worked 
with  the  Registrar  to  augment  individual  art  object  records  and  to  research 
6l  v;omen  artists’  careers  over  four  centuries  and  in  11  countries.  Gallery 
talks  by  the  Registrar  and  volunteer  Ebdiibition  Assistant  Angela  Rice  were 
given  for  interested  Docents  v;ho  then  gave  public  tours,  some  in  sign-language 
for  the  Deaf,  The  Registrar  produced  free  bibliographic  brochures  available 
in  the  exliibition.  On  three  weekends  slide  talks,  music,  theater  and  poetry 
by  v;omen,  scheduled  by  the  Program  Office,  were  hosted  by  the  Registrar  in 
October  and  November  1975.  Public  response  was  enthusiastic. 

Other  projects  to  v;hich  volunteers  contributed  time  included:  cataloguing 
and  creating  I,D,  photos  of  the  .Arthur  Putnam  sculpture  collection;  labeling 
of  art  storage  areas  for  improved  inventory  control;  preparation  of  a storage 
room  for  eventual  educational  research  use  as  an  art  Archives  Room  for  older 
museum  records;  updating  records  of  exhibitions  and  intra-museum  transfers; 
answering  correspondence  and  inquiries  necessitating  research  into  past

irUSEU:-!  LIBRAI^Y 


As  the  fiscal  year  ended,  the  library  v/as  being  greatly  changed  as  part  of  the 
larger  remodeling  program  being  carried  out  at  the  de  Young  I-Iuseim,  bhUe 
the  current  staff  shortage  vnll  remain  a problem,  it  is  expected  that  the 
ne\-r  quarters  v-oll  be  a great  improvement  in  security  and  improved  v/orkLng  and 
research  conditions. 

Use  of  the  Library 

Ihe  library  is  used  primarily  by  staff  members  and  volunteers  (including 
docents).  It  also  ser'.'ed  77  members  of  the  public  (students,  scholars,  other 
researchers)  by  appointment  during  the  last  fiscal  year.

EDUCATION  DIVISION 


As  one  of  the  three  major  divisions  within  the  Iluseums,  the  Education 
division  is  responsible  for  the  use  of  the  permanent  and  temporary  col- 
lections to  teach  the  public  about:  the  history  of  art  and  culture,  the 
appreciation  of  art,  the  mald.ng  of  art  and  the  interrelationships  between 
different  forms  of  arts.  To  this  end  the  division  has  several  departments 
v/hich  specialize  in  carrying  out  aspects  of  this  responsibility.  Each  of 
the  departments  (Program,  Art  School,  Docents  and  Volunteers)  has  its  ovm 
report  detailing  its  activities  immediately  after  this  report. 

The  activities  of  ray  office  have  been  broadened  this  year  as  the  overall 
programs  of  the  Museums  have  continued  to  expand,  Tlie  primary  areas  of 
activity  have  been  in  overall  museum  planning,  long  range  planning  and 
reorganization  of  the  Education  division,  special  educational  programs 
for  exhibitions,  and  intern  and  volunteer  training. 

This  office  has  had  a central  role  in  the  planning  of  the  ne^^/  American  V/ing 
and  galleries  currently  under  construction,  as  v/ell  as  in  helping  to 
formulate  the  long  range  development  needs  and  plans  of  the  Museums, 

This  year  we  have  also  finally  developed  signage  for  each  gallery  explaining 
its  contents  as  well  as  a map  and  gailery  guide  to  help  orient  visitors  to 
the  Museiiras  and  aid  them  in  making  the  choices  they  v;ant  to  make  for  their 
visit. 


In  terms  of  the  long-range  planning  for  the  Education  division,  we  have  been 
actively  involved  in  trying  to  make  our  programs  more  responsix^e  to  the 
public. 

In  the  area  of  exhibitions,  the  educational  programs  that  we  put  together 
for  the  exliibition  American  Art  from  the  Collection  of  Mr,  and  Mrs,  John  D, 
Rockefeller  3nd  v;as  the  most  ambitious  ever  undertaken  hj  this  Museum. 

V/e  sponsored  2 coinrses  in  American  Art  history  at  the  University  of 
California-Berkeley,  and  Mills  College,  X’jhlch  bussed  the  students  to  the 
Museums  on  a regular  basis  to  study  the  works  of  art,  V/e  also  trained  10 
students  to  give  lectures  on  the  exhibition;  they  gave  over  50  free  public 
lectures  to  different  groups  around  the  Bay  Area.  V/ith  a generous  grant 
from  the  National  Endowment  for  the  Humanities,  v;e  published  a comprehensive 
handout  on  the  exhibition  including  an  historical  background,  bibliography, 
lists  of  programs  at  the  Museums  and  around  the  Bay  Area,  V/e  also  produced 
a program  called  /m  American  Sampler  (See  Program  Department  for  full 
description)  and  collaborated  iidth  U,  C.  Extension  on  a one-day  scholarly 
symposium  on  American  Art. 

Other  exhibition-related  activities  have  been  varied.  For  the  exhibition  of 
Ancient  Egyptian  Art,  ■Tma.ges  for  Eternity  , v;e  produced  an  audio  visual 
program,  a free  brochure  on  the  exhibition,  sponsored  two  public  lectures 
on  the  art  and  collaborated  v/ith  U,  C,  Extension  on  a symposium.  For  the

EDUCATION  DIVISION  (Continued) 


exhibition  Fire,  Earth  and  Water  - Sculpture  from  the  land  Collection  of 
h'esoanerican  Art,  ue  produced  an  a-gdio  ^/isual  program  outlining  the  coin^lex 
liistorj’-  of  Pre -Columbian  I-Iexico  as  well  as  stimulating  interpretative  labels 
for  each  object.  After  we  remodelled  trro  of  our  peimanent  English  galleries, 
we  produced  interpretative  labels  to  stimulate  the  visitors ’ understanding 
and  awareness.  For  the  exhibition  Day  of  the  Dead  honoring  the  Mexican 
festival,  we  developed  interpretative  labels  arji  worked  with  the  San  Fran- 
cisco School  Department  on  special  workshops  for  students.  An  exhibition 
called  Introduction  to  I^inting  Conservation  x-ias  developed  to  sho;-j  hear  a 
painting  is  treated  after  it  is  damaged,  and  we  developed  extensive  didactic 
material  for  the  exhibition  including  a free  flyer  handout  explaining  the 
process.  For  Women  A.rtists  from  the  Permanent  Collections,  we  produced  a 
free  brochure,  and  for  Three  Centuries  of  French  Art  we  developed  intro- 
ductor^r  wall  labels  and  used  quotations  from  the  artists  concerning  their 
ait  • For  faster  Paintings  from  the  Hermitage  and  State  Russian  Museum, 
Leningrad  are  prodraced  a 2h-page  free  handout  explaining  each  painting  and 
artist  in  the  exhibition,  based  on  a brochure  oiigiTially  publistied  by  the 
Ilational  Gallery  of  Art,  Washington,  D.  C, 

The  last  major  area  of  involvement  has  been  in  the  training  in  museum 
practices  of  interns  from  various  universities  including  U,  C, -Davis, 

U,  C, -Berkeley  ar^  Bernington  College,  the  training  of  volunteers  (including 
the  orgarization  of  a Volunteer  Council),  and  the  continued  training  of  and 
a-Tork  ad.th  Docents  under  the  s’jpervision  of  a recently-hi2red  Docent  Coordinator, 

The  most  irrmortant  continuing  aspect  of  this  entire  program  aiill  be  in  the 
reorganization  of  the  Education  Division,  using  the  results  of  public  surve^^ 
on  various  aspects  of  the  Museums  * performance,  so  that  the  various  depart- 
ments are  effectively  working  together  at  all  levels  to  bring  the  best  possible 
programming  to  the  public.

PRCGI?^M  OFFICE 


The  progranHning  for  fiscal  1975-76  reflects  our  interest  in  developing  a 
closer  relationship  betv/een  the  Performing  Arts  Programs  and  the  E:diibition 
Programs  to  reach  a v/ider  museum  audience  and  to  enhance  both  the  exliibitions 
and  the  programs.  Examples  of  that  philosophy  were  reflected  in  the  series 
of  programs  related  to  the  exhibition  V/omen  Artists  and  in  the  humanities 
series  entitled  "An  American  Sampler:  l8th  and  19th  Century  Arts  and  Enter- 
tainment," produced  in  conjunction  with  the  exliibition  of  American  Art  from 
the  Collection  of  Mr,  and  Mrs,  John  D«  Rockefeller  3rd,  The  American  Issues 
Forum  awarded  S6^5C0  to  the  Museums  for  production  of  a brochure  for  the 
exhibition.  In  addition  to  these  sizeable  efforts,  the  program  office  was 
involved  in  the  production  of  many  other  events  held  in  conjunction  with 
exhibitions , 

Vi/ith  the  advent  of  admission  charges  to  the  Museums,  the  program  office 
also  instituted  a 75^  charge  to  programs,  V/e  felt  that  most  people  v;ould 
not  readily  give  a donation  at  the  Theater  after  having  paid  to  get  into 
the  building.  The  attendance  at  the  programs  was  affected  by  the  change 
in  policies,  but  revenues  increased  for  the  Performing  Arts  Programs, 

Tlie  Little  Theater,  felt  by  many  to  be  one  of  the  finest  small  theaters  in 
the  area,  was  greatly  improved  v/ith  the  removal  of  the  canvas  top  and  the 
re  finishing  of  the  stage  floor.  This  allov/s  for  great  flexibility  in  the 
use  of  the  stage  and  in  some  instances  (such  as  the  Dance  Series)  reduces 
costs  since  special  considerations  for  the  floor  have  become  unnecessary. 

The  organ  concerts  presented  by  staff  organists  Ludv/ig  Altman  and  Nevrton 
Pashley  continue  to  draw  v;hat  is  quite  nearly  a group  of  devotees.  Ad- 
mission charges  have  affected  the  attendance. 

The  Tivilight  Concerts  v/ere  moved  from  the  de  Young  Museum  to  the  Legion 
of  Honor  during  the  Chinese  Exhibition,  The  results  of  the  move  were  con- 
sidered positive,  and  Ti'd-light  Concerts  at  the  Legion  of  Honor  are  continuing 
Attendance  is  hjLgh  and  audience  response  quite  good, 

"An  American  Sampler" 


The  ideas  for  this  series  emerged  from  the  Program  Office  and  the  Docent 
Council  simultaneously,  Tlie  goal  was  to  present  a look  at  various  points 
in  American  history  and  at  the  ways  which  artists  of  different  disciplines 
used  to  make  a statement  about  those  times,  Wanda  Corn,  art  historian, 
professor  at  Mils  College,  and  Guest  Curator  for  the  American  Art  Exhibition 
was  selected  as  Artistic  Director  for  the  American  Sampler  Series,  A Com- 
mittee was  selected  which  in  addition  to  Dr.  Corn  consisted  of  the  folloMng 
people:  Stephen  Arkin-Literature , San  Francisco  State  UrJLversity;  V/esley 
Chamberlin- Art  History,  San  Francisco  State  University;  Sister  Mary  Dominic- 
American  Music  Research  Center,  Dominican  College;  Paul  Karl strom- Archives  of 
American  Art;  and  Dianne  Sachko-Leni  Sloan  Dance-Lone  Mountain  College.  At 
the  end  of  the  series  a written  evaluation  was  obtained  from  the  audience 
which  will  be  useful  in  setting  up  future  programs  of  this  sort.

In  November  1975 1 acting  on  a proposal  submitted  by  Robert  V/oodruff,  the 
Program  Office  made  a public  announcement  concerning  the  solicitation  of 
nev/,  unproduced  (in  the  Bay  Area)  short  tv;o  act  plays  by  local  playwrights. 
By  January  the  Program  Office  had  received  over  300  scripts.  Due  to  the 
overv/helming  response  and  other  factors,  we  decided  to  postpone  presentation 
until  the  Fall  of  1976  and  to  seek  additional  funding, 

ACUAA 

In  addition  to  its  continued  membership  in  the  Western  Alliance  of  Arts 
Administrators,  the  Museums  nov/  have  membership  in  the  Association  of 
College,  University  and  Community  Arts  Administrators,  Inc,  (ACUAA),  a 
national  organization  v;hich  holds  conferences  related  to  all  aspects  of 
performing  arts  - presentations,  planning,  and  behind  the  scenes  aspects. 

In  addition,  ACUAA  has  several  publications  which  contain  useful  information 
ranging  from  sample  contracts  to  audience  surveys. 

Volunteer  Council 


The  Program  Office  was  responsible  for  the  reorganization  of  the  Volunteer 
Council  and  for  the  publication  of  the  Volunteer  Handbook.  The  reorganization 
included  orientation  sessions  v;hich  were  designed  to  give  volunteers  a sense 
of  the  variety  of  activities  which  occur  in  the  Museums  and  to  put  the  staff 
in  touch  with  museum  volunteers.  The  Volunteer  Handbook  was  designed  to 
provide  supplementary  information  concerning  the  Museums’  operations  and 
procedures.  In  addition,  a Current  Events  book  and  an  artists’  card  file 
were  developed  for  use  by  Volunteers, 

Under  the  supervision  of  staff  coordinator  Ola  Kupka,  volunteers  sei*ve  the 
year  round  on  public  information  desks  at  the  Legion  of  Honor  and  de  Young 
Museums,  In  the  past  year  volunteers  were  placed  on  special  assignments  in 
the  office  of  the  Director,  in  the  Library  and  in  the  Development,  Regis- 
tration, Programming,  Exhibitions  and  Conservation  department.  Volunteers 
serve  on  a regular  basis  in  the  Public  Relations  office,  the  Achenbach 
Foundation  for  the  Graphic  Arts  and  in  the  Museum  Society  offices. 

During  major  public  exhibitions,  volunteers  sell  tickets,  catalogues  and 
Acoustiguides,  distribute  surveys  and  educational  handouts,  and  work  in  the 
Museum  Bookshop,  Daring  the  Chinese  Archaeological  Exhibit,  the  Hermitage 
Exhibit  and  the  Rockefeller  Exhibit  volunteers  served  a total  of  l6,300  hours, 

A total  of  179  volunteers  completed  one  of  the  five  Volunteer  Training  and 
Orientation  Sessions  offered  in  1973-76.

THE  DE  YOUNG  ART  SCHOOL 


The  de  Young  Museum  Art  School  is  a non-profit  educational  corporation 
within  the  administrative  structure  of  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  of  San  Fran- 
cisco, City  and  County  of  San  Francisco.  The  Art  School  is  a department 
in  the  E,ducation  Ei‘ vision  of  the  museum,  employing  3^  artists  to  share 
their  skills  and  resources  with  the  museum,  the  school  system,  other  cul- 
tural and  educational  institutions,  and  the  Bay  Area  community  at  large. 

It  is  the  purpose  of  the  Art  School  to  develop  educational  and  cultural 
programs  in  conjunction  with  the  museuiii;  these  include  studio  art  classes, 
production  of  films,  video  and  slide  presentation,  art  programs  for  the 
San  Francisco  Unified  Schools,  art  events  for  communities,  exhibitions, 
and  consultant  work  for  other  non-profit  agencies. 

In  the  1975-76  fiscal  year,  the  Art  School  relocated  from  the  de  Young 
Museum  to  a downtoira  location  at  Hov/ard  Street  and  New  Montgomery.  The 
move  was  necessitated  by  the  museum’s  building  project:  new  American  galleries, 
a restaurant,  workshops  and  new  Art  School  quarters.  Existing  programs  vi/ere 
lost,  but  new  programs  began.  A majority  of  the  past  students  no  longer 
enrolled  in  classes,  but  a business  commimity  audience  developed,  and  programs 
for  this  audience  emerged.  There  are  no  longer  classes  for  children  nor  a 
curriculum  based  on  the  museum  collection,  but  now  there  are  professional 
studios  for  jewelry,  photography,  printmal^ing,  painting  and  drai\dng,  a \’ldeo 
and  film  resource  department,  and  a thriving  Dovmtown  Art  Gallery  at  651 
Howard  Street, 

The  move  has  resulted  in  a financial  loss  to  the  Art  School  of  :|$8,000  expended 
in  moving  and  renovation  costs.  This  figure  coupled  with  a monthly  overhead 
of  an  estimated  4^1,700  per  month  and  a decrease  in  student  fees  presents 
a tremendous  biirden  to  the  Art  School, 

At  the  museum  location,  there  were  no  rent,  utilities,  garbage  collection  or 
telephone  costs,  yet  the  Art  School  has  survived  these  increased  costs 
vn.thout  any  financial  support  from  the  museum  or  the  City  and  County  of 
San  Francisco,  1/ith  a 56/o  decrease  in  student  attendance  and  constantly 
rising  operating  costs,  the  Art  School  faces  problems  but  hopes  to  maintain 
a program  at  the  Downtovra  Center  through  June  1977*  The  school  \d.ll  return 
to  the  de  Young  Museum  in  the  \^d.nter  of  1977  with  a full  class  schedule 
slated  for  March  of  that  year. 

The  dedication  of  the  Art  School  staff  (5^?^  of  which  are  artists  working 
through  the  Mayor’s  Office  of  Employment  and  Training  (C.E.T.A.),  combined 
with  community  support  and  assistance  from  the  museums,  the  San  Francisco 
Art  Commission’s  Neighborhood  Arts  Program,  the  California  Historical  Society, 
the  San  Francisco  Library,  and  the  San  Francisco  Zoo,  enabled  the  Art  School 
to  continue  its  programs  and  to  expand  in  new  directions  to  meet  some  of  this 
city’s  ciiltural  needs.  For  a list  of  Art  School  persormel,  see  Appendix  VI.

In  the  1975-76  fiscal  year  the  Art  School  was  responsible  for  the  foUov/in^ 
projects  and  pro grans: 

Classes 

Prior  to  the  relocation,  the  Art  School  functioned  as  it  has  for  the  past 
ten  years  offering  studio  classes  for  children  and  adults  that  related  to 
the  museum  collection,  as  v;ell  as  drop-in  studio  workshops  relating  to 
temporary  e^chibitions , artist  demons trs.tions  and  field  trips.  Durdng  the 
1975-76  year,  l6l7  adults  and  1145  children  attended  studio  classes, -and 
54cO  people  attended  drop-in  classes  and  ’workshops. 


Perhaps  the  most  obvious  change  was  the  suspension  of  classes  for  children. 

The  nev;  location  did  not  meet  the  Field  A.ct  code  for  a school  nor  was  the 
neighborhood  conducive  to  children,  A limited  program  for  children,  however, 
has  continued  v/ith  classes  being  held  in  the  galleries  of  the  de  Young  Museum, 
the  Legion  of  Plonor,  and  the  Academy  of  Sciences. 

Trip-Out  Tiycks  / Trio-Cut  Tnorlcs 

The  Trip-out  Truck  is  a mobile  outreach  program  conducted  b^.^  the  Art  School 
which  brings  artists,  art  programs,  and  art  objects  to  the  schools  and  to 
community  locations  in  San  Francisco.  The  -program  has  t’wo  brightly  painted 
vans  well  stocked  \-rLth  supplies  and  a staff  of  ten  artist/instructors  from 
the  Art  School  ’who  'work  nart  time  on  the  trucks.  There  are  also  eight  suit- 
case exhibits,  called  Trip-out  Trunks,  containing  masks,  textiles,  puppets, 
je’welry,  ceramics,  printmaking,  calligraphy  and  basketry,  ’which  are  either 
used  on  the  trucks  or  loaned  to  classroom  teachers.  The  trucks  operate  all 
year,  3 to  4 days  each  ’week.  V/e  have  more  requests  for  the  program  from  the 
teachers  than  v/e  can  possibly  fill.  Funding  for  the  trick  program  during  thns 
fiscal  year  ’was  provided  by  the  National  Zndo’/.’ment  for  the  Arts  Special 
Projects  and  the  Museum  Society,  Tnere  ’was  no  cost  to  the  City  and  County  of 
San  Francisco, 

The  Trip-out  Truck  program  ’wcrlcs  ’vith  classroom  teachers  to  create  an  art 
program  that  v/ill  assist  both  the  student  and  the  teacher,  Tliis  3/ear  we 
decided  to  do  a more  formal  evaluation  of  the  program  to  find  out  how  teachers 
and  students  react  to  specific  aspects  of  our  program.  The  results  indicate 
that  teachers  are  aided  in  developing  ne’w  instructional  materials  and  ’wa3/s 
to  organise  projects,  and  they  gain  confidence  in  teacrJng  about  art  objects. 
Students  get  more  indivHdual  assistance,  feel  mors  freedom  in  their  art 
projects  and  learn  to  face  stiffen  educational  challenges. 

The  trucks  once  again  received  national  recognition  as  the  program  is  featured 
in  a -video  tape  on  CETA  artists  produced  bvr  Optic  Ner’/e  and  is  a fea-tured 
program  in  the  National  Sndovmient  for  the  Arts  City  S-cirit  film  by  Glen  Fleck, 
In  summar3/,  the  trucks  visited  l4l  schools  and  17  commuriity  centers,  and 
reached  a total  of  53 j 321  children  and  ad-ults.

The  Food  E:<hibit  - November  1975-January  197^  - de  Young  Museum 
This  was  a year  long  major  project  tackled  by  the  Art  School  staff.  The 
purpose  of  the  exhibit  was  to  shov;  the  art  and  rituals  of  the  various 
ethnic  groups  residing  in  the  San  Francisco  Bay  Area.  Food  was  selected 
as  the  theme  because  it  provided  a common  element.  This  program  would  not 
have  been  possible  without  C.E.T.A.  personnel,

C.E.T.A.  personnel  v/orked  together  in  research,  photography,  and  design  to 
produce  a community  traveling  exliibit  for  the  California  Historical  Society. 
The  exliibit  based  on  the  theme.  Pursuit  of  Happiness,  focused  on  California 
as  the  land  of  plenty  and  illustrated  concepts  with  details  from  San  Fran- 
cisco's VJPA  murals. 

Zoo  Introduction  to  Animal  Habitat,  an  exhibition  at  the  San  Francisco  Zoo 
which  provides  an  introductory  experience  for  the  zoo  visitor.  Prepared  by 
two  Rockefeller/NEA  Training  Fellov/s  assisted  by  C.E.T.A,  personnel,  it 
includes  folk  art  apieces  of  animals,  prints,  photographs  and  dravm.ngs. 

There  has  been  a grant  proposal  submitted  to  the  National  Endowment  for  the 
Arts  for  the  purpose  of  expanding  this  project  to  include  more  panels  and 
video  tapes  a.bout  the  zoo. 

Mural  Projects  - Four  major  works  of  art  were  produced  id-th  private  funding 
and  available  monies  from  the  museum's  exhibition  allocation  of  the  City  and 
County  of  San  Francisco: 

Johji  Rampley  and  John  V/ehrle  worked  on  v/ooden  panels  in  the  de  Young  Museum 
parking  lot  to  produce  two  murals;  the  two  artists  completed  a landscape 
mural  at  Kaiser  Foundation  Hospital  in  South  San  Francisco;  and  Jose  Grant, 
also  a C.E.T.A.  artist  v/orking  vith  the  Art  School,  singlehandedly  found 
funding  and  executed  a mural  at  the  Page  and  Gough  Street  mini -park. 

Film  and  Video  Productions 


Using  film  and  video  as  a tool  for  education  about  the  visual  arts  and  about

Museum  Training  and  Intern  Programs 

The  de  Young  Museum  Art  School  has  been  involved  in  training  persons  for 
work  in  museum  education  and  in  providing  museum  experience  for  young  persons 
for  the  past  three  years;  it  is  helped  by  the  Art  School's  varied  programs 
and  close  relationship  with  the  school  district  and  other  community  agencies. 

I,  Training  for  Museum  Professionals:  The  Rockefeller/National  Endowment 

for  the  Arts  Training  Fellowsliips  in  Museum  Education. 

Ten  persons  were  selected  from  the  thirteen  western  states  to  participate  in 
a work/study  program  concentrating  on  museum  education  and  community  arts 
administration.  The  purpose  of  the  project  is  to  provide  practical  expeiuence 
and  professional  training  in  the  form  of  seminars  and  field  trips  for  persons 
v;ho  wish  to  enter  the  museum  profession, 

II,  Training  Program  for  Teenagers  and  Young  Adults. 

In  the  summer  of  1975  the  National  Endowment  for  the  Arts  Expansion  Arts 
Program  and  the  Neighborhood  Youth  Corps  program  provided  funds  and  salaries 
for  a youth  v;ork/study  project.  Nine  students  were  recruited  from  every  area 
of  the  city  to  work  in  the  museum  and  in  the  urban  outreach  programs.  The 
program  has  been  funded  again  this  summer  and  is  being  coordinated  by  tv/o 
C.S.T.A,  artists.

Tliroughout  the  year,  Art  School  projects  were  initiated  and  conducted  by 
C.E.T.A,  employees,  a federally  funded  employment  program  addressed  to  the 
national  problem  of  unemployment.  The  Art  School  supervised  and  supported 
tlie  projects  of  twenty  C.E.T.A,  artists.  In  addition,  five  C.E.T.A,  personnel 
v;ere  assigned  to  the  Art  School  through  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  of  San  Francisco, 
Tliis  program  has  benefited  the  San  Francisco  artist  who  is  traditionally  un- 
employed or  underemployed,  the  city's  education  and  cultural  institutions, 
and  the  people  of  San  Francisco, 

Tlie  C.E.T.A,  program  has  acted  as  a catalyst  to  the  Art  School  program  and 
has  provided  a strong  and  dedicated  staff  to  initiate  projects  and  to  meet 
community  cultural  needs.  It  has  further  enabled  the  Art  School  to 
coordinate  programs  v/ith  the  other  city  agencies  who  share  our  C.E.T.A., 
personnel;  the  San  Francisco  Zoo,  Kearny  Street  V/orkshop,  Jackson  Street 
Gallery,  California  Historical  Society,  the  Maritime  Museum,  San  Francisco 
Neighborhood  Arts,  San  Francisco  Unified  School  District,  Chicano/Xatino 
conmnunity  programs,  and  the  San  Francisco  Public  Library. 

It  ’.dJLl  be  a major  loss  to  the  de  Young  Museum  Art  School,  The  Fine  Arts 
Museums  of  San  Francisco,  and  to  the  community  at  large  should  the  C.E.T.A, 
artist  project  end  this  coming  fiscal  year.

COUNCIL 


' Docent  Council  Profrrams 

The  primary  function  of  the  Docent  Council  is  to  interpret  the  permanent 
collections  and  special  exliibitions  of  the  Asian  Svrt  Museum  and  Tlie  Fine 
Arts  Museums  to  the  museum  visitor  - adults,  school  children  and  special 
groups  of  senior  citizens,  the  deaf  community,  and  educational  groups  of 
all  ages.  Secondarily,  docents  provide  support  to  the  staff  by  doing 
research,  library  v/ork,  special  projects  such  as  tapestry  conservation, 
and  assisting  in  the  Registrar's  office. 

To  acliieve  its  primary  goal  in  a professional  manner,  the  Docent  Council 
gives  its  members  advanced  and  continuing  training  in  the  Arts  of  Asia, 
Europe,  Africa,  Oceania,  and  the  /imericas.  This  past  year  such  training 
was  handled  in  several  v;ays:  through  lectures  and  seminars  by  professors 
from  near-by  universities  or  from  the  Ilxuseums’  staff.  In  addition,  sma3.1 
monthly  v/orkshops  organised  by  docents  themselves  were  devoted  to  specific 
topics  in  v;hich  docents  felt  they  needed  further  v;ork.  Attendance  at  the 
weekly  advanced  training  is  mandatory  if  a docent  is  to  continue  to  tour 
actively.  Docents  give  a minimum  of  two  tours  per  month. 

In  1975-1976  the  Docent  Council,  with  guidance  from  the  Museums'  staff, 
provided  continuing  training  v/ith  the  emphasis  on  developing  "participatory" 
tours  for  the  visitor.  All  western  docents  are  nov;  qualified  to  give  tours 
at  both  the  de  Young  and  Legion  of  Honor  museums  for  the  first  time  since 
their  merger,  and  sixteen  docents  completed  their  two-year  training  in  the 
Arts  of  Africa,  Oceania,  and  the  Americas  and  are  now  qualified  to  tour 
in  these  galleries. 

Another  facet  of  the  Docent  Council  is  its  "Docents  for  the  Deaf  Program," 
established  six  years  ago  to  reach  the  deaf  community  of  all  ages  and  to 
enable  them  to  enjoy  more  fully  the  resources  of  our  Iliuseums,  An  advanced 
class  of  thirteen  and  a beginning  class  of  six  docents  were  given  training 
in  sign  language  and  lip  reading,  vn.th  funding  for  the  teacher  provided  by 
the  San  Francisco  Community  College  District,  TTiis  program  was  further 
supported  and  its  services  consequently  expanded  b^r  a grant  from  The  San 
Francisco  Foundation,  In  June,  as  a part  of  Deaf  Awareness  V/eek,  the 
Docents  for  the  Deaf  gave  a "celebration"  for  the  Bay  Area  deaf  community 
vn.th  films  and  theatre,  Tliis  program  is  known  not  only  in  this  area,  but 
nationally  as  well;  other  museums  have  vised  it  as  a model  for  their  ovn 
programs. 

By  operating  on  an  extremely  tight  budget  in  the  past  fiscal  year,  the 
Docent  Council  was  able  to  hire  a Docent  Coordinator,  Ms.  Lizabeth  Cohen, 

As  a member  of  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  staff,  her  function  is  to  serve  as 
liaison  to  the  staff  and  to  work  with  docents  in  evaluating  their  programs 
and  in  developing  new  ones.  Her  first  resioonsibility  in  this  position  v;as 
to  expand  the  School  Program  and  to  increase  communication  with  the  San 
Francisco  Unified  School  District  and  neighborhood  and  community  centers.

Tl:e  Docent  Council  provides  daily  tours  of  the  permanent  collections  and

groups  - college  classes,  convention  visitors,  and  members  of  national  or 
international  art  groups  including  tours  in  foreign. languages, 

Tlie  Docent  Council  provides  a valuable  service  to  the  nuseums  it  serves  - 
as  its  members  and  their  tours  are  the  primary  interface .between  the  col- 
lections and  the  public  - and  lool^  forward  to  expanding  its  programs  and 
services.

Docent  Council.  1975-1976 

Docent  Council  School  Program 


Tlie  School  Program  offers  participatory  museum  experiences- -to  school,  grcra-ps 
primarily  from  the  2nd  through  12th  grades.  Our  objective  is  to  develop 
cultural  av/areness  and,  visual  skills  in  children  through  exciting  inquiry^ 
into  the  art  of  Asia,  America  and  Europe,  and  the  traditional  arts  of- Africa, 
Oceania,  and  the  Americas.  Our  specific  goals  for  the  program  this ’year 
included  v;orking  more  closely  v/ith  the  San  Francisco  public  schools,  and 
striving  for  better  integration  of  the  museum  visit  with  on-going  .classroom 
teaching.  Accomplishment  of  the  latter  goal  called  for  much. joint  planning 
and  coordination  between  museum  staff,  docents  and  teachers. 

Communication  v.dth  teachers  and  schools  was  aided  by  the  presence-  of  three 
part-time  Museum  Teaching  Assistants.  Tlie  Museum  Teaching  Assistant-..and  the 
docents  v;ould  evaluate  after  every  tour  how  well  the  program  met  the -original 
goals  and  ho\/  effective  the  over-all  experience  v/as  for  the  oliildren.- 
School  docents  give  at  least  one  tour  a v;eek,  participating  as  a member-  of 
a team  that  gives  regular  tours  a specific  day  each  v;eek,  Vdiile  most  of  our 
teaching  occurs  in  the  museum,  on  occasion  programs  are  planned  for  the 
classroom  as  well. 

To  improve  coordination  between  the  museum  and  schools,  the 'School  Program 
offered  several  v;orkshops  to  groups  of  teachers  to  acquaint  them  v/ith  museum 
resources  and  suggest  classroom  activities  that  prepare  students  for  and 
follow-up  a museum  visit.  V/e  also  began  to  develop  curriculum  materials  for 
use  by  teachers  to  assist  in  their  integration  of  the  museum  id.th  the  class- 
room. In  this  coming  year,  v/e  look  forv;ard  to  expanding  both  -of  these  efforts. 

The  follov/ing  are  examples  of  some  of  the  programs  offered  in  conjunction 
vdth  the  San  Francisco  Unified  School  District. 

1,  \Je  participated  in  an  "African  Safari"  program  organized,  by  the  Environ-

involved  training  eight  9th  graders  from  Presidio  Junior  High  Scliool  to  be 
guides  for  27  classes  from  three  elementary  schools.  The  girides  helped  the 
cliildren  look  at  hov;  African  artists  and  craftsmen  portrayed  through  art 
the  same  animals  they  had  explored  at  the  zoo,  The  Academy  of  Sciences,  and 
in  their  classrooms.

An-IIl'IISTRATIOIJ  DIVISION 


As  one  of  the  three  major  divisions  ^^rithin  the  l^useums,  the  Administrative 
Division  is  responsible  for  the  preparation  and  administration  of  the  City 
budget,  personnel,  maintenance,  security  of  the  buildings  and  collections, 
development  of  new  sources  of  funding,  and  generally  for  the  coordination 
of  activities  id.thin  the  Museums*  three  major  divisions.  This  past  year  I 
have  been  responsible  for  the  planning,  administration  and  coordination  of 
the  complex  de  Young  renovation  project,  an  exciting  project  which  will 
serve  many  needs  of  the  Museiims, 

Security 

The  security  staff  is  responsible  for  the  safety  of  art  objects,  visitors 
and  the  two  buildings  (including  the  Asian  Art  Itiseum),.  Considering  the 
Iiigh  attendance  and  lovr  average  number  of  guards  per  gallery,  theft  or 
major  damage  was  miniriial.  However,  daytime  protection  against  vandalism 
continues  to  be  our  biggest  problem.  Our  gua]7d  force  is  supplemented  by 
eight  CETA  personnel  (compared  to  II4.  last  year)  but  is  well  belca-r  minimums 
for  reasonable  coverage  of  the  galleries.  If  it  were  not  for  the  extensive 
renovation  being  conducted  at  the  de  Young  Museum,  causing  us  to  close  large 
areas  of  the  imiseum,  we  might  have  had  to  close  sections  of  the  museum  to 
the  public  so  that  other  areas  could  be  mors  adequately  secured. 

We  are  looking  for  more  effective  ways  of  utilizing  the  relatively  small 
guard  force  we  have.  At  the  suggestion  of  the  Police  Department,  some  blazer- 
type  uniforms  have  been  purchased  by  the  Board  of  Trustees  5 hox^ever,  this 
small  number  needs  to  be  increased  to  be  more  effective.  The  uniforms  have 
added  to  the  visibility  of  the  guards  while  in  the  galleries. 

Personnel 


The  Muse-ums  have  been  greatly  aided  by  CETA  guards,  clerks,  preparators  and 
community  workers.  Without  this  help,  we  would  certainly  have  had  difficulty 
maintaining  the  present  level  of  public  service.  ¥e  continue  to  have  diffi- 
culty filling  key  curatorial  positions  due  to  salaiy  levels  which  are  behind 
other  museijms,  locally  and  nationall3r.  The  salaiy  imbalance  between  certain 
Ifuseum  positions  and  other  City  employees  continues  to  create  a situation  of 
low  morale. 

The  Museums  also  suffer  from  the  lack  of  curatorial  depth  in  various  depart- 
ments, Basic  clerical  staff  is  now  so  thin  as  to  impose  great  hardships 
during  absences  due  to  illnesses  or  vacations.  Even  more  discouraging  is 
having  curators,  conservators,  registrars  and  the  like  spending  their  valuable 
time  doing  routir^  clerical  work. 

On  the  positive  side,  the  Museum  Society  - through  direct  financial  aid  - 
and  volunteers  have  provided  additional  personnel  support.  The  staff  chart 
at  the  front  of  this  report  illustrates  the  importance  of  this  help.  VJhat 
the  chart  does  not  shoi^  are  the  50  nex7  volunteers  x^ho  work  for  the  Museum 
on  a daily  basis  in  all  facets  of  musexmi  operations.  We  are  gratef-ul  for 
their  support,

Physical  Plant 


The  two  antiquated  buildings  continue  to  require  massive  transfusions  of 
maintenance  and  repair  dollars*  The  leaking  roof  problem  for  now  has  been 
resolved.  Poor  ventilation  and  the  lack  of  air  conditioning  is  now  our 
major  concern^  it  threatens  the  veiy  existence  of  the  art  objects.  Also 
excessive  amounts  of  natural  light  in  some  galleries,  combined  I'lith  too 
little  artificial  light  in  others,  plagues  the  exhibition  of  our  collecbionj 
the  one  deteriorates  most  art  objects,  and  the  other  limits  proper  viewing. 

We  have  been  fortunate  to  get  help  from  the  Pluseum  Society  and  from  the 
National  Endowment  for  the  Arts  to  correct  one  portion  of  this  problem  with 
an  in-galleiy  lighting  system  for  several  galleries  at  the  Legion  of  Honor. 

¥e  shall  continue  to  need,  and  therefore  request,  capital  improvement  funds 
to  complete  the  job. 

In  March  1976,  as  part  of  San  Francisco's  bicentennial  celebration,  a major 
renovation  project  at  the  de  Young  Museum  was  begun.  Of  primaiy  interest 
will  be  the  construction  of  5^000  square  feet  of  nei'i  gallery  space  to  exhibit 
the  American  paintings  and  decorative  arts  from  the  Museum -s  permanent  col- 
lection. Opening  is  scheduled  for  May  1977*  An  additional  10,000  square 
feet  of  neiiT  space  is  being  created  by  excavating  under  the  existing  galleries 
and  adjacent  to  the  existing  basement;  when  com.pleted  in  March  1977j  it  will 
provide  modernized  art  storage.  The  existing  basement  is  to  be  converted  into 
a suite  of  conservation  laboratories  for  paintings,  decorative  arts  and  textiles. 

As  a part  of  the  renovation,  a new  restaurant  facility  is  being  created  which 
will  open  onto  the  Oakes  garden.  This  has  been  one  of  the  most  requested 
services  by  visitors.  Staff  offices  also  are  being  renovated  to  create  mor^ 
practical  utilization  of  existing  space.  The  library  will  be  more  efficient 
and  secure.  The  art  school  is  being  reoriented  so  that  students  enter  the 
rear  of  the  building,  thereby  increasing  our  security  and  decreasing  our 
overhead.  The  loading  of  art  objects  and  non-art  objects  will  be  somewhat 
separated  and  controlled,  and  a new  guard  station  will  be  able  to  control  all 
acti-^/ities  at  the  ser/ice  entrance  of  the  Iliseum.  In  general,  the  renovation 
T’lill  provide  a resolution  of  the  many  past  security  problems  caused  by  the 
poor  physical  design  of  the  building. 

The  entrances  to  both  Museums  continue  to  provide  architectural  barriers  to 
the  physically  handicapped.  Ramps  are  needed  to  remedy  this  situation,  A 
temporary  wooden  one  was  installed  at  the  Legion  of  Honor  this  spring,  but 
because  of  certain  physical  limitations,  the  costs  of  a temporary  ramp  at 
the  de  Young  are  prohibitive,  A raii^  for  the  de  Young  was  requested  in  the 
City  budget,  but  eventually  was  deleted  as  not  having  high  enough  cityc'jide 
priority. 

With  the  institution  of  admission  fees,  we  were  faced  with  a difficult 
sitiiation  of  finding  a way  of  collecting  fees  in  buildings  not  designed  for 
ihat  purpose.  We  corntantly  st?d.ve  to  provide  the  visitor  a warm  and  com- 
fortable environment;  easy  orientation  and  information;  free  access  to  our 
bookshop;  free  admission  of  large  groups  of  school  children;  proper  security; 
and  at  the  same  time  to  collect  the  admission  fees  as  efficiently  and  econ- 
omi Crt.lly  as  possible.  It  ■will  be  necessary  to  provide  funds  for  a planning 
study  of  all  these  conflicting  components  so  that  we  can  effectively  re- 
design each  entrance.  Hopefully,  we  can  integrate  a rairp  for  the  elderly  and 
the  handicapped  into  our  p3a.nningo 


- 37  - 


Budp:et 


Due  to  ail  ever-shrinking  budget,  we  are  forced  to  look  for  other  sources  of 
income  and  re-examine  our  programming.  If  we  continue  to  have  a lack  of 
adequate  personnel  and  supporting  funds,  we  vri.ll  be  forced  to  decrease  the 
number  of  exhibitions  and  special  programs  which  will  undoubtedly  have  a 
negative  impact  upon  our  attendance  and  certainly  upon  our  service. 

It  our  contention  that  the  Museums  are  a major  asset  to  the  City,  providing 
a good  return  on  the  tax  dollar.  The  Museums  are  a significant  attraction 
for  tourists  and  visitors  from  afar  as  vrell  as  from  the  Bay  Area,  Furthermore, 
a strong  foundation  of  City  support  attracts  private  and  federal  monies  to 
support  I-Iuseum  activities.  The  renovation  at  the  de  Young  is  an  example  of 
hoi-j-  vie  were  able  to  get  support  both  locally  and  nationally  for  the  Museums, 
The  $2,Ii.  million  being  spent  on  this  program  is  providing  jobs  in  the  City 
as  well  as  eliminating  10  previously  requested  projects  worth  $2,09  million 
which  have  been  included  in  the  Capital  Improvements  Advisoiy  Coiranittee ’s 
Six  Year  Program,  Thus,  this  money  serves  two  purposes:  providing  jobs  and 
eliminating  ad  valorem  tax  money  to  do  this  viork. 

The  following  chart  compares  the  major  programs  of  the  Museum  T-iith  the  corres- 
ponding financial  sources  of  revenue.  In  summary,  almost  2^  private  dollars 
vrere  spent  last  year  for  each  dollar  of  City  support. 

In  order  to  maintain  this  private  interest,  v^e  must  have  the  continued  support 
of  our  operations  vri.th  an  adequate  City  budget,

Admissiong 


In  August  1975  the  Board  of  Trustees  decided  to  institute  an  admission  charge 
rather  than  suffer  a major  budget  cut  proposed  by  the  Board  of  Supervisors. 

It  was  implemented  December  1,  1975«  Ttie  Museums  are  open  every  day  of  the 
year  from  10:00  AI^l  to  5:00  PM.  For  persons  age  18-65  admission  is  75?i;  persons 
age  12-18,  250;  persons  under  12  or  over  65,  Museum  Society  Members,  Society 
for  Asian  Art  Members,  Museum  Trustees,  Other  Museum  Professionals,  members  of 
ICOM,  AAI'^,  WAAI4,  AAI-ID  and  BAGAC,  Guests  as  may  be  determined  by  the  Museum 
and  members  of  organized  educational  groups  including  the  person  in  charge 
are  Free,  Payment  of  one  fee  covers  admission  to  the  Asian  Art  Museum,  M.  H. 
de  Young  Memorial  Museum  and  the  California  Palace  of  the  Legion  of  Honor  on 
the  same  day.  Admission  is  free  on  the  first  day  of  the  month.  The  Museum 
Society  may  charge  a separate  fee  for  admission  to  Museum  Society  sponsored 
special  Exhibitions  and  events, 

Vihile  raising  revenue,  the  admissions  charge  has  had  the  effect  of  drastically 
reducing  attendance.  At  the  de  Young,  attendance  for  the  first  7 months  since 
the  admission  charge  v;as  levied  has  been  229,092,  compared  to  an  adjusted 
average  attendance  for  the  same  period  for  the  2 previous  years  when  admission 
was  free  of  33^,724  for  a net  reduction  of  32, 7/^. 

At  the  Legion  of  Honor,  attendance  for  the  first  7 months  since  admission 
charge  was  levied  has  been  135,678,  compared  to  an  adjusted  average  attendance 
for  the  same  period  for  the  2 previous  years  when  admission  v;as  free  of 
281,663  for  a net  reduction  of  41,3/'^, 

The  average  reduction  in  attendance  for  both  Museums  compared  to  the  2 previous 
years  is  36. 7?^ • 

Of  interest  is  that  we  average  a 21/o  increase  in  daily  attendance  on  days  v;hen 
admission  is  free  at  the  de  Young,  Because  of  the  timing  of  the  Russian  show, 
the  corresponding  figure  for  the  Legion  of  Honor  v/ould  not  be  representative  and 
is  thus  not  shown. 

V/e  feel  that  it  is  too  early  for  a realistic  comparison  of  attendance  figures 
because  of  fluctuating  exhibition  schedules  from  year  to  year.  See  Appendix 
VIII  for  the  Museums  Admission  Fund  Statement  of  Revenues  and  Expenditures, 

Develonment 


As  the  link  between  the  staff  and  the  Board  of  Trustee’s  Development  Committee, 
Ann  M,  Knoll,  Development  Officer,  v/as  responsible  for  assistance  to  the 
Development  Committee  in  raising  funds  for  the  de  Young  Renovation  Project  and 
for  advising  in  matters  of  individual , foundation  and  government  support.  She 
prepared  and  processed  grant  applications,  administering  grants  to  The  Fine  -Arts 
Museums  Foundation  and  the  de  Young  Museum  Art  School, 

The  Development  Office  assisted  in  an  ambitious  capital  drive  to  raise  new  funds 
for  the  de  Young  Renovation,  estimated  at  S2.4  million.  Given  incentive  by  a 
S400,000  challenge  grant  from  the  Charles  E.  Merrill  Trust,  the  drive  success- 
fully accomplished  its  goal. 


- 39  - 


Since  this  success j the  Development  Committee  has  been  aware  of  the 
continuing  need  for  an  ongoing  capital  fund-raising  program  at  the 
>!u3eiims;  consequently,  a development  drive  is  being  prepared  in  concert 
x-xith  the  I-iiseuma*  plan*  In  this  plan  we  will  be  able  to  pinpoint 

the  areas  of  activity  where  peimanent  funding  is  required,  such  as  ongoing 
refurbishment  and  maintenance  of  the  museums,  endowments  for  curators  hips, 
and  a special  purchase  fund  for  major  acquisitions*  An  aggressive,  com- 
prehensive and  ambitious  development  plan  xd.th  his  objectives  would  offer 
dramatic  opportunities  for  individuals,  corporations  and  foundations  to 
join  in  providing  The  Fine  Arts  Miseums  of  San  Francisco  :d.th  a solid 
financial  base* 

In  previous  years,  the  Development  Office  had  been  concerned  primarily  t-ri.th 
sustaining  an  active  grant  program,  principally  with  the  National  Endoi'ment 
for  the  Arts  and  Humanities*  This  past  year,  how-ever,  has  been  one  in  which 
other  sources  of  revenue  have  been  sought*  Nonetheless,  a number  of  grants 
have  been  ai-xarded  to  the  Museums,  and  several  are  still  pending.  A list  of 
grant  activity  appears  in  Appendix  VII.

PUBLIC  IILFOPM'-PICN  OFFICE 

Two  valuable  innovations  helped  make  the  year  under  review  a productive 
one  for  the  Public  Information  Office: 

1,  A telephone  line  v;as  installed  to  give  recorded  information,  updated  by 
the  Public  Information  Office,  on  the  Museums'  activities  in  order  to  lessen 
the  load  of  the  regular  lines, 

2.  Radio  station  KIBS/KDFC  generously  offered  to  broadcast  vignettes  on  the 
Museums*  activities.  These  tv/o-  to  three-  minute  programs  are  now  written 
and  recorded  by  volunteer  Rosemond  Shirinian  with  the  guidance  of  the  Public 
Information  Office, 

This  year  began  with  intensive  efforts  on  behalf  of  a major  exhibition  of 
Egyptian  art,  Images  for  Eternity,  In  addition  to  extensive  coverage  in 
Bay  Area  newspapers  and  magazines,  television  interview’s  v;ere  arranged  for 
Mr.  Richard  Fazzini  and  Dr,  Bernard  Bothraer  of  The  Brooklyn  Museum,  and 
notices  in  buses  helped  to  keep  the  exhibition  in  the  public  eye. 

Coincidental  with  the  Egyptian  exhibition  was  an  exhibition  of  Precolumbian 
art  from  the  Land  Collection,  Fire,  Earth,  Uater,  The  Public  Information 
Office  provided  not  only  local  publicity  services  but  also  cooperated  with 
the  museums  in  Honolulu  and  Seattle  to  which  this  exhibition  -was  circulated. 

In  December  the  Museums'  admission  charge  v;as  announced,  and  it  has  been  the 
subject  of  many  articles  and  public  queries  since. 

An  exhibition  of  etchings  by  Edgar  Chahine  from  the  collection  of  Albert 
Nalbandian  received  support  from  Air  France,  French  Bank  of  California  and 
I.  Magnin.  The  Public  Information  Officer  coordinated  publicity  and  certain 
other  activities  that  concerned  these  sponsors. 

The  final  phase  of  the  exhibition  Three  Centuries  of  French  Art  on  loan  from 
the  Norton  Simon  Foimdation  and  the  Norton  Simon  Inc,  Foundation  was  accorded 
special  publicity  service  by  Donald  L,  Blum,  public  relations  consultant  to 
The  Museum  Society  and  the  Museimis,  San  Francisco  Magazine  published  a full 
color  reproduction  of  a painting  in  the  exhibition,  and  there  v;as  broad 
coverage  of  the  gala  opening  celebration. 

A major  campaign  v/as  planned  to  publicize  the  extraordinary  exhibition  of 
Master  Paintings  from  the  Hermitage  and  the  State  Russian  Museiim,  Leningrad, 

and  the  special  morning  hour  for  groups  was  quickly  oversubscribed.  However, 
a strike-induced  nine-day  closing  of  the  Museums  destroyed  much  of  the 
momentum  of  the  campaign,  as  did  halting  of  special  shuttle  bus  service 
to  the  Legion  of  Honor  for  the  duration  of  the  exliibition. 

The  major  effort  of  the  year  under  review  was  on  behalf  of  American  Art: 

An  Sidiibition  from  the  Collection  of  Mr,  and  Mrs,  John  D,  Rockefeller  3rd. 

Widespread  notice  v/as  secured  locally,  nationally  and  internationally. 
Articles  appeared  in  many  magazines,  including  Smithsonian  Magazine,  American 
Art  Reviev;,  Apollo , Sunset,  Ccilifornia  Living,  Performing  Arts,  P.G.&  E. 
Progress  and  Antiques,  as  well  as  dozens  of  newspapers.  Statement  staffers 
were  sent  to  l60,000  customers  of  the  San  Francisco  Water  Dept,,  and  400 
transit  cards  were  placed  in  Bay  Area  buses,  A special  undergraduate 
lecturers  program  on  behalf  of  the  exhibition  v/as  publicized  and  quickly 
oversubscribed.

tvtqp-q^^c;-  ^continued) 


The  Museum  Society’s  tri-museum  monthly  calendar,  compiled  by  the  Public 
Information  Office,  had  reached  a circulation  of  more  than  20,000  at  the 
end  of  the  fiscal  year,  providing  information  on  a multitude  of  museum 
activities  and  events. 

The  invaluable  volimteer  service  of  Susan  Booth  in  the  Public  Information 
Office  is  gratefully  ad-mov/ledged.

DIKSCTOR’S  rOIfflWOPJ) 


Renascent  - bringing  again  into  being  or  renev/ed  vigor  - is  the  word 
which  to  me  most  aptly  seems  to  characterize  this  tv/elve  month  period  of 
accomplishment.  Reaffirming  the  principles  on  v/hich  the  Museums  were 
founded,  considerable  funds  and  energy  v/ere  expended  to  restore  an  aging 
facility,  and  to  consolidate  the  pliysical  assets  and  organization  of  the 
Museums,  Through  this  process  of  renewal,  there  are  developing  nev;  in- 
sights and  concepts  of  the  Museum  organism,  • ’ 1 


The  story  of  the  restoration  of  the  tapestry  collection  typified  the 
renev;al  process.  The  collection  had  been  "hanging  around"  or  relegated 
to  storerooms  for  years  in  the  de  Young  Museum  and  the  Legion  of  Honor, 

The  tii^o  segments  were  combined  for  the  first  time  and  were  washed 
thoroughly  and  restored  by  a group  of  volunteers  under  the  guidance  of 
Anna  Bennett  assisted  by  her  engineer  husband,  Ralph,  Mrs,  Bennett 
published  the  first  comprehensive  catalogue  of  the  collection.  In 
celebration  of  the  event  a large  group  of  tapestries  were  exhibited  at 
the  Legion  of  Honor  and  the  first  tapestry  symposiimi  ever  held  in  the 
western  hemisphere  took  place  in  November,  After  a year’s  grad^iate  study 
in  liiurope,  sponsored  by  the  Museum,  Bruce  Hutchison  returned  to  begin 
work  in  a newly  created  city  position  of  Textile  Conservator,  Tliis  was 
gratifying  recognition  by  the  City  of  the  restoration  of  this  valuable 
collection,  \7ork  on  the  tapestries  is  a continuous  process,  but  now  this 
team  is  turning  its  attention  also  to  the  costumes  and  other  textiles 
owcied  by  the  Museums, 

The  de  Young  Museum  renovation,  an  extensive  2,3  million  dollar  re- 
juvenation of  the  physical  plant  had  profound  effect  on  the  Museums, 

After  several  years  of  planning,  the  actual  construction  began  in  the 
spring  of  1976,  All  xrork  was  within  the  confines  of  the  existing  building 
shell;  the  only  expansion  that  took  place  was  underground.  By  excavating 
behind  the  existing  Kress  basement  back  towards  Hearst  Court,  space  was 
lorovided  for  a suite  of  conservation  laboratories  and  greatly  expanded  and 
reorganized  storage  facilities.  The  whole  section  of  the  main  floor  level 
of  the  Museimi  designed  originally  as  exhibition  space  had  been  usuiped  for 
various  service  activities.  Out  of  this  renovation  came  space  for  a new 
suite  of  American  Galleries,  a small  restaurant,  new  bathrooms,  improved 
facilities  for  the  Art  School,  shipping  and  receiving  areas,  and  exhibition 
preparation  space.  This  work  requ.ired  a long  overdue  "spring  cleaning". 

An  accretion  of  clutter  and  objects  left  over  from  the  days  before  the 
de  Young  Museum  becarae  an  art  museum,  forced  decisions  to  dispose  of  a 
myriad  of  objects.  Did  we  really  need  to  keep  a World  War  I gas  mask 
and  pieces  of  shrapnel  in  our  decorative  arts  collection? 

The  renovation  fell  far  short  of  solving  all  the  foreseen  long-range 
needs  of  the  Museum,  It  had  to  be  recognized  as  Ehase  1 of  a 2,  3j  or  4 
step  process,  but  i^^as  a substantial  step  forward.  The  space  demands  of 
a gro^^^ing  collection  of  staff  and  volunteers  were  hardly  solved.  The  exist- 
ing staff  'offices  were  divided  and  perhaps  made  more  habitable  but  it 
was  unfortunate  that  plans  for  toilet  facilities  in  this  area  had  to  be 
given  1 X because  of  the  cost  of  bringing  drain  lines  and  plumbing  to  this

section  of  the  building.  Rearrangements  in  the  library  have  made  sur- 
veillance easier  for  a limited  staff.  The  valuable  Archives  of  American 
Art  facility  came  doivn  from  temporary  quarters  in  the  tower  to  adjoin  the 
library,  providing  much  better  research  and  study  facilities  by  this 
relocation. 

The  American  collections  v;hich  v/ere  installed  in  the  new  American 
Galleries  , as  in  the  case  of  the  tapestries  came  from  the  collections 
of  the  Legion  of  Honor  and  the  de  Young  Museum.  Not  only  were  the  paintings 
combined  in  this  nevi  permanent  facility  but  they  were  exhibited  along  with 
American  decorative  arts.  Corridors  containing  interpretive  material  were 
included  to  give  museum  visitors  a context  in  which  to  view  these  \i;orlcs  of 
art  in  a way  that  v/as  informative  ivLthout  being  obtrusive. 

The  renovation  work  at  the  de  Young  Museum  v;as  a fitting  tribute  to 
Ransom  M.  Cook  who  retired  in  November  as  president  of  the  Board  after  a 
period  of  ten  years.  He  shepherded  the  institution  v/ith  restraint  and 
great  skill  through  a period  of  enormous  growth,  a period  highlighted  by 
the  arrival  of  the  Brundage  collection  in  San  Francisco,  and  the  merger  of 
the  Legion  of  Honor  and  the  de  Young  Museum  into  The  Fine  Arts  Museums, 

V/alter  Neimian,  v;ho  succeeded  to  the  presidency  of  the  Board  of  Trustees, 
took  immediate  steps  to  further  strengthen  the  consolidation  by  urging  that 
the  chairman  of  the  Museum  Society  become  an  active  member  of  the  Board  of 
Trustees,  thus  assisting  comm-unication  betv/een  the  two  important  governing 
bodies  of  The  Fine  Arts  Museums,  He  also  has  taken  steps  to  improve  the 
climate  of  relations  between  the  Asian  Art  Museum  and  The  Fine  Arts  Museums, 

The  Museums’  recent  pattern  of  borrowing  exhibitions  instead  of  creating 
our  o;ra  was  reversed  in  an  exhibition  of  American  Art  from  the  Collection 
of  Mr,  and  Mrs,  John  D,  Rockefeller  3rd,  It  provided  a new  synergy  between 
the  rausewiis  and  tv;o  San  Francisco  Bay  Area  teaching  institutions.  Rather 
than  lecture  from  slides  in  the  classroom.  Professor  V/anda  Corn  brouglit 
students  from  Mills  College  and  U.  C,  Berkeley  to  spend  part  of  the  course 
v/orking  directly  vn.th  origincd  v/orks  of  art  In  the  Mviseum.  An  innovative 
interdisciplinary  program  dravri.ng  on  musical,  dramatic  aiixihistorical 
resources  was  developed  in  connection  with  the  exhiDition. 

For  the  first  time,  the  Museums  were  able  to  extend  their  operatic rs  to 
a location  beyond  the  buildings  in  the  parks.  Due  to  the  renovation  at 
the  de  Yoimg  Museum,  the  Art  School  moved  its  classrooms  to  a dov/ntov/n 
center  in  a two-story  brick  building  at  651  Hov/ard  Street  on  the  edge  of 
the  business  district.  They  set  up  their  looms  for  v;eaving  and  held  various 
other  classes  and  also  established  a lively  series  of  experimental  ex- 
liibitions.  These  programs  appealed  to  a new  audience.  Office  v/orkers 
dropped  in  dirring  limch  breaks  and  came  by  at  the  end  of  the  v/orking  day 
to  take  art  classes.  The  Dovmtown  Art  Center  became  very  popular  and  with 
funds  provided  by  the  Chief  Administrative  Officer  from  the  hotel  tax,  and 
grants  from  the  San  Francisco  Foundation  and  The  Museum  Society,  operations 
are  assured  for  another  year  in  this  location  even  after  classes  resume  at 
the  de  Young  Museum  Art  School  in  the  fall  of  1977*

Important  new  developments  in  reorganization  of  the  staff  took  place. 

The  reorganization  of  the  Education  Division  has  been  accomplished  by  separating 
departmental  functions  between  the  Art  School,  Department  of  Public  Programs 
and  the  new  Department  of  Interpretation  which  includes  the  Docent  Council. 

The  departments  v.dthin  the  Education  Division  v/ork  closely  with  each  other 
and  the  Department  of  Exhibitions  to  develop  the  strongest  programs  for  the 
public. 

Top  management  of  the  Museum  staff  v/as  also  reorganized.  The  position  of 
vice  director  for  collections  (chief  curator)  v/as  abolished.  New  titles  v/ere 
given  to  the  other  vice  directors;  Deputy  Director  for  Education  and  Exhibitions, 
and  Deputy  Director  for  Administration  and  Development,  The  Director  assumed 
the  responsibilities  of  the  curatorial  diidsion  vdth  strong  support  from  the 
departments  idth  collections,  namely  Prints  and  Dravdngs  (the  Achenbach)  v/ith 
Robert  Flynn  Johnson  in  charge,  and  Painting  and  Sculp tiire  with  Thomas  P.  Lee, 

Jr,  in  charge.  In  the  few  months  since  February  when  Mr,  Lee  arrived,  he  has 
made  significant  improvements  in  the  visual  presentation  of  the  paintings  col- 
lections, He  performs  the  duties  of  scholarly  editor,  very  capably  assisted 
in  the  production  of  publications  by  Ed\-ra,rd  T,  Engle,  Dividing  the  publication 
responsibilities  in  this  waj  has  been  extremely  helpful. 

At  the  end  of  the  fiscal  year,  nev;  ciirators  for  the  department  of  Decorative 
Arts  had  been  found.  The  approaching  retirement  in  fall  1977  of  long-time 
incumbent  Graeme  Keith  was  the  opportunity  to  augment  the  department  in  a new 
way.  Michael  Conforti,  a curator  of  European  decorative  arts,  was  found  to 
head  up  the  department,  to  be  assisted  by  Donald  Stover,  a curator  of  American 
decorative  arts,  which  is  a new  specialty  for  these  Museums,  Mr,  Conforti  is 
trained  not  only  in  European  decorative  arts,  but  also  in  sculpture.  The 
present  plan  is  to  combine  the  departments  of  Paintings  and  Sculpture  and 
Decorative  Arts  vjith  Mr.  Lee  turning  sculpture  over  to  Mr.  Conforti  and  Donald 
Stover,  the  specialist  in  American  decorative  arts,  serving  both  curators  in 
an  associate  capacity.  Thus  the  Museums  which  are  strong  in  European  decorative 
arts,  will  have  a "keeper”  (in  the  English  sense  of  the  word)  and  there  will  be 
somebody  to  build  the  presently  small  American  decorative  arts  collection  to 
complement  the  strong  Ainerican  paintings  holdings. 

At  the  Board  level,  V/alter  Newman  has  developed  the  concept  of  bringing 
in  outside  resource  people  to  assist  the  Museums  though  they  do  not  necessarily 
become  members  of  the  Board  of  Trustees,  For  instance.  Dr,  Joseph  Goldyne,  an 
artist-collector-scholar,  has  been  a member  of  the  Acquisitions  Committee, 

Mr,  Neman  also  instituted  a Trustee  Exhibition  Committee,  a wise  move  in 
view  of  the  enormity  and  complexity  of  the  future  big  exhibitions:  Celtic, 
Dresden,  Tutankhamim  and  Treasures  from  the  Kremlin. 

These  exhibitions  are  the  challenge  to  help  realize  the  long  range  goals 
for  the  Museums,  If  Tutankhamun  comes,  it  comes  by  "popular  demand".  By  the 
end  of  the  reporting  period  it  seemed  assured,  Talien  as  a group  tliese  are 
among  the  most  sought  after  and  prestigious  exhibitions  v/hich  will  be  seen  in 
the  United  States,  They  mil  keep  the  Museums  in  the  cultural  foregroimd  in 
the  next  several  years.  But  they  can  be  staged  only  by  increasing  the  staff 
which  has  been  overextended  even  to  accomplish  the  normal  work  load  and  the 
special  exhibition  galleries  in  both  museum  buildings  will  have  to  have  humid- 
ity and  temperature  controls  in  order  to  handle  the  crov/ds  anticii^ated  for  these 
exhibitions.  Controlled  atmosphere  for  the  safety  of  the  objects  is  a standard 
prerequisite  for  contracting  these  international  exhibitions.

In  the  summer  of  1976  the  Art  V/orkers  Coalition  demanded  that  the  museums 
become  more  responsive  to  the  community*  The  protest  centered  around  the 
structure  of  the  board  of  trustees,  self  appointed  and  not  representative  of 
the  broad  geographic  or  ethnic  diversity  of  the  City,  and  the  Museums  programs 
were  criticized  for  similar  reasons*  Although  the  protest  had  no  overt 
immediate  results,  it  caused  review  of  the  trustee  rotation  process,  staff 
hiring  practices  and  museum  programming*  Such  scrutiny,  I believe,  v;ill 
increase  the  institution’s  responsiveness  in  the  long  run* 

An  attempt  to  find  out  who  visits  the  Museums  and  why  v/as  one  approach  to 
the  relevance  issue*  An  audience  survey  study  was  conducted  by  a Stanford 
University  graduate  student,  and  a membership  study  sponsored  by  the  Museum 
Society  was  conducted  by  a graduate  student  from  the  University  of  California, 
Results  of  both  studies  will  be  an  aid  to  future  programming  and  planning* 

The  responsibilities  of  a museum  staff  are  not  limited  to  serving  just  their 
own  museums*  They  frequently  perform  service  to  the  museum  field  at  large 
seinring  on  professional  committees,  juries,  or  rendering  professional 
opinions  and  services* 

This  year  an  endeavor  of  this  sort  involved  everyone  at  the  Museums  to  some 
degree  v;hen  the  Association  of  Art  Museum  Directors  visited  the  San  Francisco 
Bay  Area  May  29-28  for  its  annual  spring  meeting*  It  was  only  the  third  time 
that  such  a meeting  had  taken  place  in  San  Francisco  (previous  meetings  here 
occurred  in  1939  and  195^),  the  first  participated  in  by  so  many  art  museums. 
Receptions  and  events  were  held  in  the  seven  major  art  museums  concluding  with 
a morning  symposium  at  Stanford.  Splendid  cooperation  between  the  museums 
made  the  occasion  a success  and  I am  grateful  to  our  staff  and  volunteers  and 
to  the  Museum  Society  and  Board  of  Trustees  for  their  assistance  and 
generosity. 

The  reporting  period  ended  with  a major  acquisition  coming  to  the  Museums 
through  the  Mildred  Anna  V/illiams  Fund:  Cezanne’s  Les  Rochers  dans  le  Parc 
du  Chateau  Noir.  It  is  the  first  oil  painting  by  this  20th  century  master  to 
be  owned  by  a Bay  Area  museum.  If  renascence  does  indeed  characterize  the 
growth  of  the  Museums  this  year,  the  arrival  in  San  Francisco  of  such  a 
Cezanne  is  very  much  to  the  point*  One  hopes  that  it  will  bring  pleasure  and 
renewal  to  all  who  stop  by  to  contemplate  it.

Director  of  Museums

DEPARTI-IENT  OF  ^RICA,  OCEANIA  AND  THE  A14ERICAS 


iMs  year  the  major  efforts  of  the  Department  nf  Africa,  Oceania-  and  The 
Americas  have  "been  directed  towards  planning  and  developing  exhibitions, 
developing  and  maintaining  our  groining  collection,  and  exploring 

new  and  better  ways  to  interpret  art  to  the  public  and  encourage  visitor 
involvement. 

Exiiibitiona 

Our  departmgf?b *  *s  effort  for  tMe  year  wag  Ifesterpieoes  of  Primitive 

Artj  an  isMMtlen  erganited  by  the  MusewA  'of  feiMtiv©  Art  and  iho 

fod^mtloa  of  Arts,  which  included  over  100  mastei^cfNJtehs:  frsm  Africa, 
©oeasia-  aM  fhe  toricas.  The  eschlMtljn  as  it  appeared  at  the  de  Yotmg 
featured  a visito]>-cent©red  or  participatory  p^lnt  of  view,  focusing  cn 
central  q^ueftiens  like  “What  is  a riiasterpiece?",  "How  useful  is  the  term 

*mast©rpi©c©  * in  evaluating  non-¥©steni  objects?"  and  "What  are  one  »s  «wn 
feelings  and  preferences  regarding  great  worl^a  of  art?”.  Offering  an 
alternative  to  the  art-in-cultural-conterb  view  r^resented  in  the  permanent 
gallery^  the  exhibition  sought  to  both  emphasize  and  test  the  way  Westerners 
look  at  art. 

The  design  of  the  exliibit  reinforced  the  masterpiece  theme  by  stressing  the 
aesthetic  inpact  of  the  objects,  display  areas  were  light  and  spacious, 
carpeted  ramps^  allowed  multi-sided  views  of  the  art,  and  labelling  was  con- 
fined to  hand  railings  so  as  not  to  distract  from  the  art.  Introductory 
area  labels  and  the  exhiMtion  brochure  explained  t2ie  point  of  view  of  the 
show  and  encouraged  visitors  to  make  their  own  aesthetic  judgements  by  being 
more  sensitive  to  tlieir  feelings  and  to  basic  design  elements  lilce  forr.i,  line, 
color  and  texture,  ©ocent  tours  and  an  audio-visual  program  reinforced  these 
themes  and  an  unusual  educational  area  at  the  end  of  the  exliibition,  "The  Game 
Room”,  was  an  active  and  pleasant  place  where  visitors  of  all  ages  could 
evaluate  both  the  art  and  the  exihibition  through  a series  of  manipulative 
games,  a questionnaire  and  three  free  handouts.  Volunteers  were  on  hand  to 
interact  T>jith  the  public,  answer  questions  and  encourage  peeple  to  respond 
to  both  the  art  and  the  exhibition* 

]yb.sterpieces  of  Primitive  Art  was  attended  by  over  S8,000  visitors,  and  we 
were  pleased  to  extend  it  two  weelcs.  Special  programs  included  a free  film 
series,  a syuposium  given  by  University  of  GaUfomia  Extension,  and  a special 
half-day  celebration  id-th  refreshments,  entertainment  and  free  admission  to  the 
exhibition. 

Five  smaller  exliibitions  were  produced  this  year.  The  Masai  by  A1  van  Dalen 
included  20  color  photographs  and  a small  cs,se  of  jeweiiy  (November  2^-Januaiy 
31),  Tamtam  by  John  Kaufriian  was  an  exhibition  of  20  color  photographs  of  a 
ffi-cronesian  group  (Febru.ary  l-dune  30),  and  T3ie  Asmat  by  laurens  HtUhouse 
consisted  of  21  black  and  white  photographs,  a war  shield  and  an  elaborate 
woven  bo<5y  costurae  (July  2-October  31),

AFRICA,  OCEAIJIA  AND  THE  AMEIGAS  (Continued) 

Tcfo  IDitroductoiy  Galleiy  shows  x^ere  Containers  (Februaiy  1-Jime  30  a-'  cross- 

cultural  selection  of  about  60  prts,  baslcets,  boxes,  etc*,  froiri  the  Museunis  * 
collection,  and  Scrimsliaw  (July  2-October  31)  which  focused  on  contact  and 
cross  cultural  inii'luences  in  Eskimo  and  early  American  nautical  arb  and 
included  selections  from  the  Fine  Arts  Museums  of  6an  IVancisco,  the  Robert 
H.  Lewie  Museum  of  Anthropology  and  a private  collection. 

Programs,  Planning  and  On-going  Research 


Coordination  and  planning  for  the  Huichol  Ait  project  (Fall  1978)  got  underiTay 
this  year,  Fe  were  extremely  pleased  to  receive  a grant  in  support  of  the 
esdiibition  from  National  Endoxjment  for  the  Aits,  and  we  began  to  plan  the 
accompanying  publication  x-rhich  xdll  be  produced  with  a New  York  co-publisher. 

All  eight  contributors  to  the  publication  are  presently  working  on  their  essays, 
and  xje  look  forward  to  producing  a work  of  lasting  scholarly  xTalue  that  offers 
a variety  of  approaches  to  Huichol  art, 

A second  major  project  that  has  reached  the  production  stage  is  the  Interpretive 
Sheets  program  for  the  permanent  galleii^r  of  Africa,  Oceania  and  The  Americas, 
Eight  different  sheets,  geared  to  xraiious  ages,  background  and  levels,  xTill 
inteipret  our  collections  to  the  public, 

¥e  continue  to  develop  materials  for  school  use.  An  educational  packet  on  the 
Bushmen  of  South  Africa  containing  general  infoianation,  slides  and  loan  objects 
was  developed  by  a.  voltnteer,  Jean  Colvin,  Under  the  supervision  of  Yolanda 
Woo,  the  pre-Columbian  objects  we  placed  on  long-teim  loan  to  the  San  Francisco 
Unified  School  Sistrict  last  year  have  been  converted  to  stutfy  Idlts  and  used  by 
many  school  children. 

Collections 


Donations  continue  to  grexj?  ue  received  over  2^0  gifts  this  year  (valued  at 
over  $566,500),  Of  these  donations,  approximately  62%  were  African,  2C%  were 
North  American  Indian  (1  donor)  and  the  iTemainder  xiere  Oceanic,  We  made  txro 
purchases  tliis  year  from  the  Salinger  Fund  and  accepted  over  175  loans  (valued 
at  $137,000)  for  tempo raay  display. 

With  the  help  of  Ellen  Werner,  a long-time  volxxnteer,  docent  and  graduate  stud- 
ent at  Lone  Mbxmtain,  x^e  have  made  great  strides  in  organizing  and  stoiing  our 
textile  collection,  a mssive  project  that  promises  to  continue  into  future 
years,  ¥e  are  veiy  giateful  for  Ife,  Werner  thorough  and  painstaldng  work  in 
caring  for  oxir  textiles,  to  say  nothing  of  her  exacting  research  on  an  elaborate 
and  nysterious  feather  collar. 

As  the  year  drew  to  a close  we  XTere  very  pleased  to  move  our  collection  into 
new  storage  space,  and  we  look  fon-jard  to  systematically  reorganizing  it,  Flana 
f«r  the  immediate  future  include  incorporating  riiany  of  our  new  African  donations 
into  the  perriianent  gallery,

DEPARTIffiNT  OF  PAINTINGS  & SCULPTTIRE 


The  Department’s  past  year  car  be  described  unequivocally  as  one  of 
dramatic  and  solid  progress  in  all  areas  of  activities:  making  acquisitions 
of  international  iii5)ortance,  sponsoring  major  loan  exhibitions,  and  exhibit- 
ing the  permanent  collection. 

Acquisitions 

After  a somewhat  dormant  period  of  two  years  in  acquiring  paintings,  the 
Museums  made  tremendous  strides  this  year  — particularly  in  the  area  of 
French  paintings,  purchasing  significant  examples  from  the  seventeenth, 
eighteenth  and  nineteenth  centuries,  St,  Jerome  in  his  Study  by  Claude 
Vignon  added  a much  needed  religious  example  to  the  seventeenth-century 
collections  where  genre  and  mythological  subject  matter  is  dominant. 

The  Pastoral  Landscape  by  Louis  Gabriel  Moreau  the  Elder  marks  the  Museujifls’ 
first  major  representation  of  landscape  painting  in  the  collections'  already 
rich  and  varied  eighteenth-century  holdings,  A beautiful  bronze  sculpture. 

La  Source  by  Sdme  Bouchardon,  is  a proud  con^lement  to  our  eighteenth-century 
paintings'  collection  at  the  Legion  of  Honor,  Easily  the  landmark  purchase 
for  the  Museums  this  year  and  one  which  San  Francisco  will  continue  to  be 
prpud  of  for  many  years  is  Paul  Cezanne's  Les  Rochers  dans  le  pare  du 
Chateau  Noir, 


Making  its  debut  at  the  Legion  in  a new  installation  of  nineteenth-century 
French  art  this  Spring,  the  Cezanne  has  already  become  one  of  the  major 
cultural  assets  of  this  city.  As  the  only  oil  painting  by  this  artist  in 
a public  northern  California  collection,  its  importance  extends  far  beyond 
its  intrinsic  classical  beauty  to  reach  students  who  wish  to  study  traditional 
art  hovering  at  the  brinlc  of  the  modern  world. 

Several  gifts  should  be  mentioned: 

1976:  BETTS  - Portrait  of  Alma  Sevening  (oil) 

Gift  of  Lav/rence  V/estdahl,  Accession  # 1976,5 

15th  century  stone  sculpture  St,  Barbara 
Gift  of  Paul  Ballora 

Joseph  VSRNST  - Les  Baigneuses,  (oil) 

Gift  of  Mrs,  Georgia  M,  Worthington 

Joseph  DECKER  - Upset  (oil) 

Gift  of  Alfred  Frankenstein 

It  should  be  noted  that  these  acquisitions  - the  life-blood  which  nurtures 
the  grov;th  of  the  Museums  - came  entirely  from  private  funds.  As  our  major 
soTJirce  of  income  is  rapidly  depleting,  new  efforts  must  be  made  in  a broad, 
cofflmunity-\d.de  campaign  to  ens-ure  our  continuing  program  tlirough  greater 
endowment  funds.

Exhibitions 

American  Art  from  the  Collection  of  I-Ir,  & Mrs,  John  D>  Rockefeller  III  not 

only  was  the  Museums*  bicentennial  celebration  contribution,  but  it  also 
emphasized  the  Museum’s  growing  enthusiasm  for  American  art,  long  unexhibited 
during  the  Renovation  Project  at  the  de  Young*  The  benefits  from  this  ex- 
hibition have  come  both  in  educational  areas  and  the  continued  loan  of  eight 
important  paintings  from  Mr.  and  lirs.  Rockefeller,  The  exhibition  Jean 
Baptiste  Greuze  afforded  San  Francisco  the  opportimity  to  see  the  first 
major  loan  shov/  of  this  artist*s  work,  a shov;  first  seen  in  Hartford,  Connec- 
ticut, and  later  in  Dijon,  France, 

Permanent  Coll e ction 


With  the  acquisition  of  three  major  paintings  for  the  Legion  of  Honor, 
of  the  galleries  were  reinstalled  vri.th  new  attention  given  to  scale  and 
educational  needs.  The  major  effort,  however,  was  behind  the  scenes, 
preparing  for  the  opening  of  the  nev;  American  Galleries,  Virtually  all  the 
American  paintings  - and  they  number  in  the  hundreds  - were  given  work, 
including  research,  reframing,  and  conservation.  Under  the  able  direction 
of  Donelson  F,  Hoopes,  v;e  could  see  for  the  first  time  the  importance  of  the 
collection,  arranged  chronologically  within  themes  and  could  anticipate  with 
enthusiasm  the  opening  of  the  galleries  on  July  4th,  At  the  same  time  plans 
were  implemented  to  focus  our  attention  next  year  on  the  permanent  collection 
of  European  paintings  at  the  de  Young, 

Staff 

Marion  Stewart,  a volunteer  research  assistant,  continued  her  research  on 
the  French  paintings  for  publication,  which  otherwise  would  not  have  been 
possible  by  the  salaried  staff,  Mary  Small  and  Dorothy  Kemper,  also  volun- 
teers, began  the  research  v;ork  on  rehanging  the  de  Yoiing  collection,  Donel- 
son F,  Hoopes,  Visiting  Curator  for  the  American  Galleries,  performed  a 
myriad  of  jobs  which  otherwise  would  have  meant  further  delays  for  the 
American  Galleries,  Teri  Oikav/a-Picante , Conservator,  besides  examining  all 
loans  and  maintaining  the  permanent  collection,  worked  with  diligence  to  pre- 
pare all  of  the  American  paintings  for  exliibition.  In  a few  months  V/illiam  H 
Eisner  >o.ll  be  retiring  after  twenty-two  years  of  service  to  the  Museums, 
Without  his  supervision,  sensitivity,  and  attention  to  detail  none  of  the 
accomplishments  outlined  in  the  preceding  paragraphs  would  have  been  realized 

Conclusion 


Ever  larger  demands  v;ere  made  on  the  Department,  all  of  which  have  been  met 
v/ith  enthusiasm.  From  considering  v/orlcs  of  art  for  purchase,  continuing 
research  on  the  collection,  and  fulfilling  the  didactic  requirements  of 
exhibition,  to  staging  temporary  loan  shows,  communicating  to  the  public 
verbally  and  in  v/riting,  and  supervising  conservation,  \7e  have  endeavored  to 
do  our  best,  but  the  demands  continue  to  grow  xidthout  new  staff  to  aid  in  our 
goals,

ACHEI'IBACH  FOUNDATION  FOR  GRAPHIC  ARTS 


In  19^8  Mr,  and  Mrs,  Moore  S,  Aclienbach  created  the  Achenbach  Foundation  for 
Graphic  Arts,  and  presented  their  entire  collection  of  prints  to  the  City  and 
County  of  San  Francisco,  vrf.th  the  provision  that  it  would  be  housed  in  the 
Legion  of  Honor,  The  Foundation  is,  in  effect,  the  Museum's  department  of 
prints  and  drawings,  with  the  largest  graphics  collection  in  the  western  United 
States,  It  houses  not  only  a systematic  representation  of  the  history  of 
printmaking  from  the  15th  century  to  the  present  (with  approximately  100,000 
prints)  but  also  nearly  2,000  drav/ings,  a collection  of  illustrated  books, 
and  an  extensive  library  of  more  than  3»000  volumes. 

The  graphics  collection  has  been  substantially  increased  through  an  endow- 
ment bequest  of  the  Achenbachs  and  by  generous  benefactions  of  other  donors. 

The  Achenbach  Foundation  undertook  an.  active  program  in  1978-77 ? including 
exhibitions  and  further  acquisitions. 

An  important  function  of  the  Achenbach  Foundation  for  Graphic  Arts  is  its  use 
as  a teaching  resource  for  the  many  Universities,  Colleges,  and  Art  Schools 
in  Northern  California, Throughout  the  academic  year,  classes  of  art  history 
students  or  artists  visit  the  collection  to  view  and  discuss  original  prints 
and  drawings.  These  are  selected  and  shown  by  the  curators  in  the  Achenbach 
Foundation,

DEPARTMENT  OF  EXHIBITIONS 


The  Department  of  Exhibitions  is  responsible  for  all  aspects  of  the  physical 
installation  of  v/orks  of  art  in  the  Museums  for  both  temporary  exhibitions 
and  permanent  gallery  installations.  Serving  as  a coordinating  and  pro- 
duction center,  the  Department  interfaces  vm.th  all  of  the  curatorial  depart- 
ments within  the  Museums  to  meet  the  organizational  and  installation  require- 
ments for  the  exhibitions  program.  In  addition,  the  Department  works  with 
the  Education  Department  to  coordinate  the  production  and  use  of  interpre- 
tative material  prepared  for  exhibition  use,  assists  with  the  preparation  of 
catalogue  materials,  and  maintains  the  master  exhibition  schedule  for  several 
years  in  advance. 

During  the  Fiscal  Year  1976-1977  the  Department  of  Exliibitions  was  involved 
with  the  planning,  coordinating,  and  mounting  of  22  exhibitions,  v/ith  an 
additional  five  shov/s  installed  at  the  Downtovm  Art  Center,  Although  this 
reflects  a reduction  in  the  number  of  exhibitions  installed  compared  to  the 
previous  year,  three  of  the  exhibitions  required  a greatly  increased  amount 
of  gallery  space,  time,  and  staff  energy  in  organizing  and  plamaing,  SAN 
FRANCISCO;  AS  Vffl  VfflRE,  AS  ARE;  FIVE  CENTURIES  OF  TAPESTRIES;  and  MASTER- 
PIECES OF  PRIMITIVE  ART  v/ere  scheduled  for  three  months  of  public  vievdng  each 
individually  using  betweeen  12,000  and  15,000  square  feet  of  gallery  space. 

The  SAN  FRANCISCO  exhibition  and  the  TAPESTRY  exhibition  were  self-organized 
by  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  of  San  Francisco. 

Phase  One  of  the  de  Yoimg  Museum  renovation  project  reached  completion  this 
year  with  the  opening  of  the  American  Galleries  and  includes  expanded  and 
improved  areas  for  the  preparators  workshop,  design  offices,  and  storage  areas 
The  improved  facilities  and  expanded  space  have  resulted  in  a more  centralized 
and  efficient  design  and  fabrdcation  operation  for  the  exhibition  and  graphic 
design  departments  and  the  preparators  crev;. 

The  Classical  Gallery  (Gallery  One)  opened  at  the  de  Young  in  September,  1976. 
Though  it  was  scheduled  to  open  last  year,  the  strain  of  our  ambitious 
exhibition  program  delayed  the  completion  of  this  installation. 

Continued  physical  improvements  to  the  exhibition  spaces  included  additional 
track  lighting  systems  at  the  California  Palace  of  the  Legion  of  Honor  and 
hard-surfaced  walls  in  Galleries  A and  B at  the  de  Young,  The  soiled  fabric 
walls  continue  to  be  a problem  of  maintenance  and  expense  in  other  gallery 
spaces. 

The  exhibition  program  of  contemporary  art  continued  \d.th  a series  of  shows 
in  Galleries  A and  B at  the  de  Young  Museum,  The  exliibitions  were  accompanied 
by  a series  of  programs  called  "Meet  the  Artist,"  instituted  last  year,  in 
which  the  artist  appears  in  the  galleries  to  meet  with  the  museum  visitors  and 
answer  questions.  Another  program  called  Artists’  Day  was  also  continued: 
the  Curator  of  Exhibitions  met  with  Bay  Area  artists  once  a month  to  revie^^r 
portfolios  and  discuss  their  works  of  art.

DEPARTMENT  OF  EJOIIBITIONS  (Continued) 


The  Graphic  Design  Department  produced  all  of  the  signage  for  the  temporary 
exhibitions  and  permanent  gallery  installations,  including  the  educational 
and  directional  graphics  for  the  American  V/ing,  a suite  of  ten  galleries 
and  foiir  educational  corridors,  FLve  posters,  a major  catalogue,  an 
informational  newspaper,  and  an  introductory  brochure  to  the  museums,  as 
well  as  all  membership  material  and  the  Museum  Society  calendar,  were  also 
designed  and  produced  by  this  department. 

Adequate  staffing  continues  to  be  our  most  serious  problem.  Our  small  crew 
of  six  preparators,  assisted  by  three  CETA  employees,  reflects  an  increase 
from  the  previous  year,  but  the  critical  position  of  Chief  Preparator  was 
eliminated  from  the  City  budget.  As  a result,  our  preparators  crew  vi;as 
forced  to  function  without  proper  leadership,  while  being  responsible  for 
installing  and  maintaining  exhibitions  in  over  100,000  square  feet  of  gallery 
space  in  two  separate  buildings.  The  elimination  of  this  position  became 
even  more  serious  as  the  exhibition  program  escalated  in  quantity,  content, 
and  size,  necessitating  the  addition  of  temporary  preparators  to  assist  our 
small  permanent  crew  with  major  installations. 

Looking  to  the  future,  the  time  and  energy  of  the  entire  staff  iidll  be  con- 
siimed  by  three  major  exhibitions  that  are  presently  in  the  planning  and 
organizational  stages:  TREA, CURES  FROM  CELTIC  IRELAIO;  DRESDEN:  500  YEARS 
OF  COLLECTING;  and  TREASURES  OF  TUTANKHAMUN.  Each  exhibition,  posing  major 
problems  in  organizing,  shipping,  installation,  security  requirements  and 
crowd  control,  will  make  it  absolutely  crucial  to  have  adequately  trained 
additional  staff  vm.thin  the  next  year  to  assist  the  existing  staff  with  the 
ensuing  responsibilities.  Equally  important  is  the  acknowledgement  that  the 
permanent  collections  continue  to  require  proper  and  careful  maintenance, 
which,  if  ignored,  could  result  in  serious  damage  and  deterioration  to  the 
works  of  art.  Additional  trained  staff,  adequate  materials,  supplies  and 
equipment,  and  a properly  functioning  physical  plant  \d.ll  be  vitally 
necessary  for  the  next  few  years  if  we  are  to  maintain  a responsible  balance 
between  major  temporary  exhibitions  and  the  maintenance  of  the  permanent 
collections.

PABITING  CONSERVATION  LABORATORY 


Most  the  past  year  was  spent  in  conserving  the  suddenly-expanded  list  of 
Araerican  paintings  in  preparation  for  the  de  Yonng  Museurii’s  new  American  wing, 
and  although  the  restoration  of  paintings  is  not  finished,  2^  worl<s  given 
rnajor  treatment  "by  me  have  been  installed,  Hiese  paintings  include  those 
painted  by  the  Peales,  West,  Doughty,  Trunibull,  Morse,  Ihness,  Stuart,  Morton, 
Ifeihn,  Nahl  and  Decker, 

All  paintings  considered  for  acquisition  were  examined,  many  in  detailed  tech- 
nical analyses  with  reports  of  my  findings  to  the  Acquisition  Committee, 

Some  of  these  were; 

1,  CcEanne  Rocics  in  the  Park  of  the  Cliateau  Noir 

2,  Watteau  La  Partie  Quarr^ 

Chasseriau  TVjo  Portraits 

i;*  Vignon  St,  ?erone  an  His  Studio 
Bazille  PortrarE' 

6,  If'Jhistler  Seas  cape 

Technical  analyses  were  also  done  for  the  publication  of  the  French  Paintings 
Catalog,  Scholarly  research  of  the  Rose  Jfegnin  gift.  Portrait  of  a Musician 
by  the  Ifester  of  ELertialle,  oil  on  wood  panel,  was  begun^  The  Fragonard, 
Daubigny,  Greuze,  Riter  and  Schongauer  (gifts  which  arrived  in  1975  from  the 
sarae  donor)  have  nearly  been  restored  to  their  brilliant  original  state. 

The  condition  of  every  painting  in  a traveling  ^chibition  or  part  of  a loan, 
such  as  the  Rockefeller  collection  in  the  American  Galleries,  is  thoroughly 
checked  out|  riiany  of  then  must  be  given  some  type  of  treati.ient  to  insure 
their  safety  Triiile  in  our  museums*  The  inspection  and  reframing  of  every 
painting  in  our  permanent  collections  was  resumed  for  a fexr  days  only  because 
help  for  this  inportant  work  has  been  only  sporadic. 

At  the  Western  Association  of  Art  Conservators  Meeting  in  San  Diego,  I presenter' 
a slide  lecture  on  the  treatment  of  a severely  deteriorated  x7ood  panel  painting c 

Since  riy  eraployraent  in  1970,  I have  been  doing  all  the  work  iiui-LJaDly  c>?xn-ied  on 
by  a staff  of  three  conservators  in  other  museums,  I have  continued  to  rini- 
mlly  care  for  our  own  paintings,  doing  all  the  examinations,  restorations, 
docurrentation,  traveling  exhibitions,  anal3rtical  work,  repairing  daraages,  etc. 

In  order  to  continue  these  services  and  to  continue  caring  for  the  paintings 
in  a professional  manner,  I again,  stress  the  operative  need  for  enlarging  the 
painting  conservation  staff.

REXSISTRAR’S  REPORT  - M,  H.  DE  YOUNG  MM^IORIAL  MUSEUM 


During  the  1976-1977  period  the  Registrar  continued  to  receipt,  number, 
catalogue,  insure  safe  handling  of  and  return  of  all  incoming/outgoing  gifts 
and  extended  loans  to  the  permanent  collection;  arrange  for  the  pick-up, 
receipt,  safe  keeping  and  return  of  temporary  exhibitions;  be  responsible 
for  all  storage  facilities;  supervise  the  receiving,  unpacking,  crating  and 
shipping  of  all  art  objects;  maintain  the  photography  records  and  arrange  for 
special  reproduction  orders;  supervise  the  museum  vehicle  and  its  scheduling; 
and  keep  in  order  the  accession,  loan,  research,  archival,  exhibition  and  nine 
other  file  systems. 

In  addition,  the  Registrar  personally  prepared  the  monthly  insurance  reports; 
handled  damage  and  loan  claims;  conducted  tours  of  his  department  and  museivn 
facilities;  made  records  available  to  scholars,  students,  representatives  from 
other  institutions  and  qualified  individuals;  answered  written  inquiries  per- 
tinent to  the  museum* s collections  and  history  and  was  available,  in  the 
absence  of  curators,  to  answer  telephone  inquiries  of  a curatorial  nature; 
continued  to  accompany  the  transport  of  art  objects  of  more  than  nominal  value; 
and  supervised,  when  needed,  the  placement  and  movement  of  art  items  through 
the  museum. 

Much  of  the  accelerated  activity  which  made  the  previous  year  so  atypical 
diminished  or  was  absorbed  into  the  general  routine  during  this  period.  The 
items  which  had  been  so  laboriously  processed  for  de-accessioning  were  boxed 
and  stored  for  future  final  dissolution,  and  as  the  fiscal  year  came  to  a 
close  the  new  basement  storage  areas  were  starting  to  be  occupied  by  the 
contents  of  the  old  areas  destined  to  be  the  new  conservation  laboratories. 

In  addition  to  the  six  display  galleries  closed  the  previous  year  it  was 
necessary  to  close  four  more  (plus  tv;o  on  a temporary  basis)  to  accommodate 
all  the  collection  objects  and  exhibition  material  v;hich  would  normally  be 
on  display  or  in  storage  areas.  Still  atypical,  however,  was  the  necessity 
to  relocate  the  Registrar's  Office  and  all  the  museum's  own  archival  mateid.al 
to  make  way  for  the  offices  of  the  Archives  of  American  Art, 

Aside  from  regular  routine,  servicing  temporary  exhibitions  and  office  moving, 
the  last  half  of  the  period's  time  was  devoted  to  preparations  for  the  opening 
of  the  new  American  galleries.  Paintings  and  sculpture  were  transferred  from 
the  Legion  of  Honor  and  assembled  with  those  from  the  de  Yoiuig  collection  in 
two  specially  prepared  galleries.  Also,  at  the  direction  of  the  visiting 
curator,  arrangements  were  made  for  the  securing  of  sixty- two  items  from 
some  twenty  lenders  all  over  the  country. 

The  period  closed  with  active  preparations  being  made  for  the  formidable  tasks 
of  completing  the  new  basement  area  and  converting  once  again  to  public  use  the 
ten  galleries  and  halls  now  being  used  for  storage  and  work  areas.

REGISTRAR  - LEGION  OF  HONOR 


As  custodian  and  ’librarian  of  all  art  objects’  the  Registrar  works  ;d.th 
most  of  the  staff  as  a hub  of  art  object  activity,  and  also  cooperates  v/ith 
’outside’  art  freight  forwarders,  customs  and  insurance  brokers,  photog- 
raphers, and  visiting  art  scholars,  students  and  art  couriers.  V/e  are  in 
charge  of  the  safe  care  and  logistics  of  all  art  movement,  and  the  insurance 
and  documentation  of  all  art  objects  owned  and  borrov/ed,  past  and  present, 
by  the  Museum  whose  records  we  keep. 

This  year  the  Registrar  was  primarily  occupied  \d.th  processing  temporary 
exhibitions  of  loaned  art  objects,  such  as  large  tapestries,  460  toys  from 
32  lenders  to  the  "A  is  for  Animal”  Art  School  exhibition,  105  works  by  Jean 
Baptiste  Greuze,  from  both  American  & international  lenders,  268  American 
Vi/atercolors  & Drawings,  and  85  examples  of  hand-lettering  imported  for  ex- 
hibition from  the  German  calligrapher  Friedrich  Neugebauer. 

In  addition,  34  shipments  of  objects  considered  for  possible  acquisition 
were  sent  in  and  out  of  the  Museum,  as  were  37  of  our  o\-jn  collection  ob- 
jects which  journeyed  to  and  from  outside  exhibitions  at  other  museums. 

Our  French  19th  century  collection  was  moved  up  and  dovm  several  times 
alternating  v;ith  temporary  exhibitions  in  the  same  galleries. 

Permanent  collection  records  were  slowly  improved  when  the  Registrar  had  time 
to  encoiirage  and  supervise  periodic  volunteer  assistance.  A major  project 
was  the  gathering  together  of  all  "historic”  files,  periodicals  & scrapbooks 
into  a newly  lighted  and  painted  Archives  Room  for  art  records  from  1924- 
1968. 

Interns  also  assisting  v/ith  individual  files  for  newly  accessioned  objects 
were;  undergraduates  Ann  Pearson  and  Jennifer  Church  of  Mills  College,  and 
Mary  Thompson  of  Lone  Mountain,  and  graduate  student  Paula  March  of  Lone 
Mountain  College  Museum  Studies  Program;  Hanna  Regev  worked  for  many  months 
on  the  79  objects  in  the  Helene  Irvd.n  Fagan  Collection.  Other  volunteers 
were  high  school  student  Suzanne  Green,  art  history  student  Madeleine  Gunther 
who  accessioned  and  marked  the  jades  collection,  art  historian  Maria  Luise 
Huntington  who  researched  French  paintings,  and  Pauline  Jacobsen  who  began 
a long-term  project  to  compile  centralized  past  exhibition  card  records  by 
documenting  every  shov;  from  1947  through  1958. 

The  Legion  Registrar’s  office  has  been  a one-person  operation  and  therefore 
it  has  been  difficult  to  simultaneously  keep  tip  \d.th  the  processing  of  tem- 
porary loan  exhibitions  AND  the  creation  and  maintenance  of  thorough  col- 
lection object  records.  The  separate  location  of  both  the  museum  library 
and  theand  the  Curatorial  staff  at  the  other  building  has  meant  that  time 
must  be  devoted  to  staff  communication  memoranda  and  that  curatorial  assist- 
ance with  art  object  records  is  not  steadily  available.  Telephone  and 
visitors  inqviiries  of  a curatorial  nature  are  often  answered  by  the  Registrar 
v/hen  Curators  are  not  on  the  premises,  and  art  object  receiving  is  done  i/hen 
the  Miiseum  Packer  is  at  the  other  building. 

Some  staff  assistance  was  provided  this  year  by  Linda  Holden,  v/ho  worked  on 
object  photograph  files  maintenance  & customer  order  collating  & invoicing, 
by  Rockefeller  Fellow  Philip  Hart,  who  registered  & thoroughly  described  the 
entire  Neugebauer  Calligraphy  shipment,  and  by  Art  School  staff  members  v/ho 
provided  the  majority  of  the  transportation  and  documentation  of  the  Toys 
exhibition.  At  the  end  of  Fiscal  Year  76-77  the  Registrars  v/ere  looking 
forward  to  receiving  much-needed  help  from  a new  parttime  Assistant  Registrar 
to  be  funded  by  the  Museum  Society  to  work  vri.th  both  the  de  Young  and  Legion 
of  Honor  offices.

MUSEUM  LIBRAEX 


♦ 


# 


Libraiy  services  and  security  of  materials  uere  greatly  ir, proved  by  the 
remodeling  project  of  1976-77*  The  iiiaseum  now  has  a reading  room,  a 
separate  stack  area,  a small  reference  section  and  an  office  for  the 
librarian* 

Use  of  the  libraiy 

Because  of  the  disruptions  of  the  remodeling  process,  and  because  of  the 
continued  severe  library  sta^ff  shortage  (1  librarian  to  serve  the  staffs 
of  the  two  museums),  libraiy  use  was  limited  to  museum  staff  members  only. 

It  is  hoped  tliat  with  an  increase  in  libraiy  staff  next  year  we  xirill  be  able 
to  serve  the  public,  at  least  to  a liiaited  degree.

EDUCATION  DIVISION 


# 


As  one  of  the  tliree  iiiajor  divisions  id.thin  the  Museums,  the  Education  Division 
is  responsible  for  the  use  of  tlie  pen.ianent  and  tenporaiy  collections  to  teach 
the  public  about  the  histoiy  of  art  and  culture,  the  appreciation  of  art,  the 
riiaicing  of  art  and  the  interrelationships  between  different  forms  of  art.  To 
this  end  the  division  has  several  depaitr.ients  wliich  specialize  in  canying  aut 
aspects  of  this  responsibility*  Each  of  the  departments  (Program,  Art  School, 
Docents  and  Volunteers)  presents  a separate  report  detailing  its  activities 
iranediately  following  this  report. 

The  activities  of  office  have  been  broadened  tliis  year  as  the  overall  pro- 
graiiTS  -^f  the  Museur.is  have  continued  to  expand.  Hie  primaiy  areas  of  activity 
have  been  in  overall  museum  planningj  long  range  developmentj  reoiganization 
af  the  Education  division^  special  educational  programs  for  exliibitions;  and 
Intern  and  volunteer  training. 

As  a special  project,  this  office  lias  had  a centml  role  in  the  planning  of 
the  new  American  Wing  and  galleries  just  completed,  as  well  as  in  the  planning 
and  supervision  of  the  various  departmental  and  operational  moves  which  were 
necessitated  by  the  renovation  project  at  the  de  Young.  This  includes  the 
planning  and  move  of  the  entire  Museum  »s  art  storage  of  several  hundred 
thousand  objects  into  the  new  storage|  the  return  of  the  Art  School  into 
its  newly  renovated  facility^  the  restructuring  of  the  shop  and  service  spaces; 
and  the  movement  of  offices  and  personnel. 

Another  major  area  of  involvement  has  been  in  the  restructuring  of  the 
relationship  between  the  Education  Division  and  the  rest  of  the  Museur.TS  — 
particularly  the  Department  of  Ebdiibitions,  since  many  of  the  education 
prograjiis  involve  themselves  with  exliibitions , To  that  end  we  have  worked 
through  tlie  City  budgetary  process  to  restructure  the  functions  of  my  office 
to  include  the  Department  of  ExMbitions.  Hois  was  approved  as  part  of  our 
budget  and  is  effective  July  1,  1977« 

Because  of  the  size  and  scope  of  the  renovation  project  at  the  de  Young,  the 
exliibitions  and  education  programs  were  somewhat  curtailed  althougH  there  were 
several  programs  of  note.  We  produced  extensive  label  materials  for  our  new 
gallery  of  Classical  Art,  placing  the  objects  witliin  their  cultural  context. 

In  a sirdlar  manner  we  rewrote  the  contextural  labels  for  our  perr.ianent  French 
collections. 

In  the  area  of  teimporary  exhibitions,  we  produced  an  audio-visual  program  as 
part  of  the  exhibition  of  San  Franciscans  architectural  history.  As  We  VJere, 

As  We  A27e.  We  also  had  a large  film  and  lecture  program  for  tliis  exliibit. 

For  the  exliibition  Five  Centuries  of  Tapestries  we  produced  an  audio-visual 
program  and  extensive  expianatoiy  labels  whidi  will  circulate  xith  the  ex- 
liibition  to  other  museums.  We  held  a 3-day  symposium  of  international  scholars 
on  tapestries,  and  during  the  exhibition  itself  we  had  weaving,  spinning  and 
dying  deiuonstrations  in  the  galleries  as  well  as  trained  docents  who  explained 
the  exhibition  to  the  visitors.  For  two  visiting  exhibitions,  Jean-!^ptiste 
Greuze  and  American  1-fe.ster  Dramngs  and  Watercolors,  we  rewrote  the  accompany- 
3ng  Ta'bels,  produced  a ‘brn'cliur'e  and  Had  a series  of  lectures.

EDUCATION  DIVISION  (Continued) 

For  the  exliibition  Masterpieces  of  Primitive  Art^  we  developed  an  orientation 
area  designed  to  acquaint  the  visitor  iiith  the  art  historical  concepts  used 
to  determine  a msterpiece.  Within  the  exliibition  we  provided  an  audio  visual 
prograra  and,  at  the  end  of  the  exhibition,  a Game  Room  which  Imd  several 
programmed  learning  situations  using  computers  and  other  teaching  formats. 

We  also  produced  a bmchure  and  several  handouts  for  the  esdiibition.  Finally, 
we  distributed  an  extensive  questionnaire  to  visitors  to  detem'iiine  wliich  amas 
were  successful  and  wliich  were  not.  In  association  with  tliis  exhibition,  we 
collaborated  with  University  of  California  Extension  on  a symposium  on  prir.iitive 
art  and  the  pleasures  and  perils  of  collecting. 

The  last  major  area  of  involvement  lias  been  the  training  in  museum  practices 
of  interns  from  various  universities  firom  around  the  country,  Tlie  training 
of  volunteers  (docents  and  other  volunteers)  continued,  and  we  have  worked 
out  a number  of  organizational  probleiTis  which  had  existed  between  the  various 
volunteer  groups  and  the  Museums, 

The  challenges  reriiain  to  broaden  our  prograriiming  efforts  so  that  we  are  able 
to  reach  a larger  public  with  stimulating,  high-quality  programs  wliich  focus 
as  closely  as  possible  on  the  peiiiianent  and  temporary  collections  of  the 
MuseuTiTS,

DEPARTI-ISNT  OF  PUBLIC  PROGRMS 


In  the  past  year  the  Department  of  Public  Programs  has  devoted  much  of  its 
energies  to  exploring  new  avenues  to  programming,  attempting  on  the  one  hand 
to  develop  projects  which  would  closely  support  and  enhance  the  Museums’ 
exhibition  program,  while  on  the  other  hand  seeking  out  new  emd  untried 
projects  in  the  performing  arts*  At  the  same  time,  the  number  of  programs 
offered  to  the  public  has  been  maintained  at  the  same  level  as  the  previous 
yetyr.  Several  projects  stand  out  as  exceptional  or  unusual  and  will  be 
discussed  individually. 

Continued  Successes 


Organ  concerts  by  staff  organists  Ludwig  Altman  and  Newton  Pashley  continue 
to  draw  large  and  appreciative  crowds  at  the  Legion  of  Honor,  This  year,  as 
in  the  past,  both  organists  continued  to  perform  every  Saturday  and  Sunday 
afternoon  and  offered  several  programs  enhanced  by  the  participation  of  guest 
artists;  choirs,  vocal  and  instrumental  soloists.  Their  program  selections 
also  reflected  a particular  effort  this  year  to  support  the  exhibition 
activities  of  the  Museums. 

The  Tvri-light  Concerts  series  by  the  San  Francisco  Chamber  Orchestra  (Edgar  J • 
Braun,  Music  Director)  witnessed  yet  another  season  of  overflow  and  capacity 
audiences.  The  previous  year’s  move  from  the  de  Yoimg  to  the  Legion  of  Honor 
has  resvilted  in  the  Little  Theater  becoming  the  permanent  home  of  these  popular 
and  critically  successful  events. 

Bay  Area  Playwrights  Festival 

In  October  and  November  of  1976  the  Program  Office  presented  the  first  Bay  Area 
Playwrights  Festival  in  the  Little  Theater.  The  result  of  some  300  scripts 
submitted  the  previous  year  for  a new  one-act  drama  project,  the  Festival 
presented  the  world  premieres  of  seven  works  by  six  regional  authors  in  a six- 
week  r-un.  Artistic  Director  Robert  V/oodruff  personally  directed  a highly 
acclaimed  production  of  a musical  by  Obie  award  winning  author  Sam  Shepard 
entitled  The  Sad  Lament  of  Pecos  Bill,  Other  works  presented  in  the  Festival 
included  The  String  Gatherer  by  Frederick  Karl  Van  Patten,  The  Parasites  by 
Ebbe  Roe  Smith,  The  Clown  by  V/ayne  Pease,  The  Meter  Beggar  and  The  Parking 
Meter  by  Joel  Witkin,  and  Passing  Shots  by  screen  writer  Stephen  Yafa,  The 
Festival  received  overwhelming  support  of  the  press  and  the  Bay  Area  theater 
community  and  is  planned  again  for  1977-78, 

Toward  Better  Support  of  Exhibitions 

This  year  three  major  exhibitions  were  the  motivation  for  special  and/or 
unusual  programming  efforts  by  this  office.  The  photographic  exhibition  on 
the  City  entitled  As  We  V/ere,  As  We  Are  was  complemented  by  two  series  of 
public  programs.  The  first  was  a program  of  12  lectures,  forums  and  panel 
discussions  by  prominent  Bay  Area  political,  historical  and  civic  figures  on 
a variety  of  current  and  historical  issues  important  in  the  City  today.  The 
second  was  a twelve  week  series  of  feature-length  movies  filmed  in  or  about 
San  Francisco  between  1923  and  1975 • Both  programs  were  developed  in  the 
Program  Office  with  the  assistance  of  Nancy  Van  Norman  and  Margo  V/arnecke,

DEPARTflENT  OF  PUBLIC  PROGPj^MS  (Continued) 


For  the  exhibition  Five  Centuries  of  Tapestry,  a series  of  performing  arts 
programs  was  developed  to  parallel  the  exhibition  and  support  its  various 
themes.  The  programs  opened  on  the  e^diibition’s  first  day  with  four  perform- 
ances by  the  excellent  Medieval  music  ensemble  Amici  Musicae,  and  concluded 
with  a conceirt  of  Baroque  music  for  flute  and  harpsichord.  One  of  the  high 
points  of  the  series  was  a set  of  eight  performances  by  the  San  Francisco 
Actors  Ensemble  of  a Medieval  mystery  play,  enhancing  the  portion  of  the 
exhibition  dealing  with  the  mystery  play  and  providing  an  excellent  enter- 
tainment for  the  holiday  season  as  well*,  In  conjunction  with  the  exliibition 
Master-pieces  of  Primitive  Art,  the  Program  Office  developed  a series  of  20 
films  shovm  on  10  consecutive  Sunday  afternoons,  dealing  vn.th  the  arts  and 
anthropology  of  the  cultures  whose  works  were  represented  in  the  exhibition. 

For  Children 

As  a result  of  an  inquiry  from  the  Bay  Area  office  of  Yoxmg  Audiences  Inc,, 
a national  organization  dedicated  to  the  development  of  londerstanding  and 
appreciation  of  performing  arts  in  young  people,  the  Program  Office  offered 
a series  of  l6  Saturday  afternoon  performiances  for  children  by  a variety  of 
Young  Audiences’  performing  ensembles.  The  programs  ranged  from  classical 
music  concerts  to  eastern  European  Folk  dancing,  and  it  was  intended  that 
the  presence  of  these  programs  in  an  art  museum  would  provide  an  especially 
rich  environment  for  the  children  in  the  audience.  The  newly-formed  San 
Francisco  Attic  Theater  presented  a series  of  eight  performances  of  three 
plays  on  Saturday  mornings  at  the  Legion  of  Honor.  San  Francisco  Attic 
Theater  is  dedicated  to  presenting  fine  quality  theater  for  children,  per- 
formed by  children,  V/e  are  presently  negotiating  with  them  for  programs  in 
1977-78. 

Reaching  Out 

In  cooperation  with  the  San  Francisco  Park  and  Recreation  Department  and 
the  San  Francisco  Guitar  Society,  a series  of  four  concerts  of  guitar  music 
was  presented  in  the  Little  Thea-ter  during  the  winter  season.  All  four 
concerts  saw  capacity  audiences  and  a new  series  if  being  discussed  for 
1977-78,  In  addition,  through  a co-sponsorship  arrangement  between  the 
Museum.s  and  several  outside  organizations,  a number  of  other  performing  arts 
events  was  made  available  to  the  Museums*  membership  and  to  the  public. 

These  included  the  excellently  received  premiere  performances  by  the  new 
San  Francisco  Opera  Piccola,  a concert  by  the  Reno  (Nevada)  Chamber  Orchestra, 
an  avant-garde  theater  piece  from  Los  Angeles  entitled  Ethiopia,  a -violin 
recital  by  San  Francisco  Symphony  violinist  Bruce  Freifeld,  a series  of 
eleven  performances  by  the  v/idely  acclaimed  Sufi  choir  of  Fairfax,  and  a 
fine  recital  by  bass-baritone  Vahan  Toolajian,

Miscellaneous 


In  addition,  the  Program  Office  presented  two  lectures  by  Donelson  Hoopes 
and  George  Hopper  Fitch  in  conjunction  with  the  exhibition  of  American 
Drawings  and  Water colors,  a lecture  by  Edgar  Munhall  in  conjunction  with 
the  Jean-Bap tiste  Greuze  exhibition,  and  a series  of  four  showcase  concerts 
by  outstanding  student  musicians  of  the  Bay  Area,  Receptions  and/or  dinner 
parties  by  a dozen  outside  organizations  in  the  Museums  were  arranged  and 
coordinated  through  the  Program  Office,  and  the  Office  assisted  in  the 
arrangements  for  and  coordination  of  over  25  Museum  Society  and  Museum- 
sponsored  receptions,  dinners,  previews  and  luncheons. 

Charles  Mills  continued  his  involvement  with  the  Volunteer  Council,  assist- 
ing in  this  year’s  training  for  new  volunteers  as  v/ell  as  revising  the 
volunteer  handbook  for  a second  edition,  Bruce  Merley  led  the  Program 
Office  coordination  of  transportation  for  the  1977  meeting  of  the  Association 
of  Art  Museum  Directors  (AAMD)  in  the  Bay  Area,  and  assisted  in  the  arrange- 
ments for  a two  day  seminar  by  UC  Extension  in  conjunction  with  the  exhibition 
Masterpieces  of  Primitive  Art,  and  a two  day  International  Tapestry  Symposium 
at  the  Legion  of  Honor,  Opening  day  celebrations  were  presented  by  the  Pro- 
gram Office  for  the  exhibitions  As  We  Were,  As  We  Are  and  Masterpieces  of 
Primitive  Art, 


Personnel 


James  Baldocchi,  an  experienced  theater  technician,  assumed  the  part-time 
position  as  theater  manager/projectionist  for  the  Museums,  Nancy  Van  Norman 
worked  in  the  Program  Office,  first  as  an  intern  from  Lone  Mountain  College, 
later  as  an  assistant  on  the  programs  for  As  ¥e  Were,  As  VJe  Are  and  on  the 
A.A.M.D.  meeting.  Their  contributions  during  the  past  year  are  gratefully 
acknowledged. 

Facilities 


More  clearly  than  ever,  this  year  demonstrated  that  the  Little  Theater  at  the 
Legion  of  Honor  is  in  desparate  need  of  renovation.  Program  after  program, 
we  were  faced  with  the  inadequacies  of  the  lighting  and  sound  systems.  The 
old  and  largely  poor  quality  curtains  are  literally  disintegrating  in  front 
of  our  eyes.  The  recently  refinished  stage  floor  is  now  so  thin  (from  count- 
less refinishings)  that  a particleboard  superfloor  originally  intended  to  be 
temporary  is  now  a permanent  fixture.  The  carpeting  is  woefully  beyond  more 
cleaning;  the  house  desperately  needs  repainting;  the  seating  is  nearly  col- 
lapsing under  our  audiences.  Clearly,  it  is  doubtful  that  the  Little  Theater 
can  endure  another  season  of  this  level  of  programming  in  its  present  condition.

DEPARTMENT  OF  INTERPRETATION 


The  Department  of  Interpretation  is  concerned  with  helping  to  make  the 
museum  experience  enjoyable,  educational,  and  comprehensible.  To  this 
end,  the  department  v;orks  with  other  members  of  the  staff  in  order  to 
produce  the  material  and  tours  used  to  supplement  both  the  permanent 
collection  and  the  temporary  exhibitions.  A partial  listing  of  the 
interpretive  aspects  in  a museum  includes:  orientation  areas,  labels, 
catalogues,  brochures,  hand-outs,  guides,  audio-visual  shoivs,  and  docent, 
acoustical,  and  self-guided  tours. 

Since  I arrived  in  mid-February,  I have  been  involved  in  the  development 
and  production  of  the  interpretive  material  for  most  of  the  exhibitions 
held  in  the  museums.  This  includes  working  v/ith  the  docents  on  their 
programs,  training,  recruiting,  and  tour  techniques.  In  addition,  I have 
prepared  a new  Gallery  Guide  to  assist  the  visitor  tlirough  the  galleries 
and  answer  pertinent  questions. 

In  the  coming  year,  in  addition  to  our  on-going  work,  major  efforts  will 
be  made  to  add  nev/  interpretive  labelling  to  our  permanent  collection. 
This  will  be  accomplished  with  the  assistance  of  several  volunteers. 

We  will  also  work  tov/ards  expanding  our  facilities  for  the  handicapped 
and  disadvantaged  and  enlarging  the  nTimber  of  docent-guided  school  tours 
and  programs.

DEPAEMM  OF  INTEKPESTATION  - Western  School  Program 


The  Western  (European  and  American)  School  Progran  comprises  twenty-five 
Docents  including  ten  new  graduates,  supervised  by  a Museum  Teaching 
Assistant,  The  program  is  based  on  the  premise  that  the  museum  setting 
provides  an  environment  which  offers  a great  variety  of  learning  experiences. 
Knowledge  of  the  visual  arts  is  emphasized.  Students  learn  to  identify  the 
elements  of  art  and  they  discover  the  meaning  of  artistic  expression  in  the 
CLiltures  in  which  the  objects  were  created.  In  addition  to  gaining  sldLlls 
in  these  areas,  students  are  encouraged  to  express  their  aesthetic  feelings 
and  opinions  about  a work  of  art  and  to  share  those  feelings  with  their 
peers.  This  experience  sets  a pattern  for  museum-going  that  is  both  natural 
and  personally  satisfying. 

In  order  to  staff  this  program,  a rigorous  training  is  offered  by  the 
Museum  Teaching  Assistant  in  charge  in  conjunction  with  outside  lecturers. 

The  Teaching  Assistant  offers  a v/ide  variety  of  teaching  techniques  to  be 
used  in  the  galleries  and  there  is  ample  opportunity  for  each  of  the  trainees 
to  utilize  the  techniques  v/ith  a variety  of  learning  objectives,  VJhen  the 
training  is  completed  the  Docent  feels  able  to  handle  any  student  from 
grades  1 through  12,  Constant  evaluation  and  supervision  is  offered. 

The  program  endeavors  to  work  closely  with  teachers,  the  School  District  and 
other  museums  providing  an  expanded  learning  situation  for  the  students, 
leaving  behind  the  traditional  field  trip  conception  of  a museum  visit,

DEPARTMENT  OF  INTERPRETATION  - A.O.A,  School  Program 


The  A.O.A,  School  Program  consists  of  parti ciioatory  gallery  experiences 
offered  several  mornings  a week  for  classes  (grades  2-12)  and  workshops 
for  teachers.  The  Program  is  staffed  by  approximately  twenty- five  Docents 
(including  eighteen  trainees  who  begin  training  in  September  1977)  and  the 
Museum  Teaching  Assistant,  Hie  Docents  are  responsible  for  the  planning 
and  giving  of  tours;  the  Museum  Teaching  Assistant  supervises  the  overall 
Program,  schedules  the  tours,  and  assists  the  Docents  in  planning  and 
evaluation  of  the  gallery  experiences.  The  Teacliing  Assistant  acts  as  a 
resource  for  method  and  content  and  contributes  to  the  training  of  Docents 
to  focus  on  the  development  of  skills  necessary  to  guide  the  students  in 
visual  and  cultural  av/areness.  In  addition,  the  To  iching  Assistant  maintains 
a working  relationship  \d.th  teachers  and  resource  persons  in  the  San  Fran- 
cisco Unified  School  District,  through  the  planning  of  teacher  v\;orkshops. 

The  A,0,A,  School  Program  operates  V7ith  a keen  sense  of  responsibility  to 
the  students  and  teachers  of  the  San  Francisco  Unified  School  District  and 
their  needs.  The  nature  of  the  museum  learning  environi'nent  and  the  A,0,A, 
material  directs  our  efforts:  to  guide  the  students  to  visually  experience 
and  respond  to  the  art,  to  eqTiip  the  students  to  "read"  the  objects'  cultural 
meaning  in  order  to  expand  their  own  world  view,  and  to  foster  a respect  for 
the  cultures  of  the  A,0,A,  peoples  in  students  of  V/estern  as  well  as  non- 
Wes  tern  background. 

Of  counse,  the  most  basic  objective  of  the  Program  is  to  make  each  student 
feel  welcome,  to  find  pleasure  as  he/she  learns  in  the  museum,  Tlie  attain- 
ment of  this  objective  is  well  evidenced  by  the  increasing  demand  to  par- 
ticipate in  our  Program,

ADMIMISTRATIOM  DI^/ISION 


As  one  of  the  three  major  divisions  \ri.thin  the  Museiiras,  the  Administrative 
Division  is  responsible  for  the  preparation  and  administration  of  the  City 
budget,  personnel,  maintenance,  security  of  the  buildings  and  collections, 
development  of  ne^^r  sources  of  funding,  and  generally  for  the  coordination 
of  activities  within  the  Museums’  three  major  divisions.  This  past  year  I 
have  been  responsible  for  the  planning,  administration  and  coordination  of 
the  complex  de  Yoimg  renovation  project,  an  exciting  project  which  will  serve 
many  needs  of  the  Museums, 

Security 

The  security  staff  is  responsible  for  the  safety  of  art  objects,  visitors 
and  the  two  buildings  (including  the  Asiaiji.  Art  Museum),  Our  guard  force 
was  supplemented  by  an  average  of  11  CETa"’' personnel.  Considering  the 
high  attendance  and  low  average  number  of  guards  per  gallery,  theft  or 
major  damage  was  minimal.  If  it  were  not  for  the  extensive  renovation 
being  conducted  at  the  de  Young  Museum,  causing  us  to  close  large  areas 
of  the  museum,  we  might  have  had  to  close  sections  of  the  museum  to  the 
public  so  that  other  areas  could  be  more  adequately  secured. 

As  a way  of  minimizing  the  threat  of  vandalism,  reflectionless  glass  has 
been  installed  in  a large  number  of  paintings.  The  Denovation  Project 
created  a more  seciire  service  entrance  to  the  de  Young  Museum,  Ihere,  a 
guard  station  was  constructed  with  complete  control  of  the  vehicular  and 
pedestrian  access  to  the  museijras.  This  new  design  greatly  increases  our 
internal  security. 

Personnel 


The  Museums  have  been  greatly  aided  by  CETA  guards,  clerks,  prepara tors 
and  community  workers,  V/ithout  this  help,  we  would  certainly  have  had 
difficulty  maintaining  the  present  level  of  public  service,  V/e  continue 
to  have  difficulty  filling  key  curatorial  positions  due  to  salary  levels 
which  are  behind  other  museums,  locally  and  nationally.  The  salary  im- 
balance between  certain  Museum  positions  and  other  City  employees  con- 
tinues to  create  a situation  of  low  morale. 

The  Museums  also  suffer  from  the  lack  of  curatorial  depth  in  various 
departments.  Basic  clerical  staff  is  now  so  thin  as  to  impose  great  hard- 
ships during  absences  due  to  illnesses  or  vacations.  Even  more  discourag- 
ing is  having  curators,  conservators,  registrars  and  the  like  spending 
their  valuable  time  doing  routine  clerical  work, 

1,  CETA  is  a federally  funded  work  training  program.

Administration  Division  (Continued) 


On  the  positive  side,  the  Museum  Society,  through  direct  financial  aid 
and  volunteers,  has  provided  additional  personnel  support.  The  staff 
chart  illustrates  the  in^ortance  of  this  help.  The  chart  does  not  show 
the  50  new  volunteers  who  v/ork  for  the  Museum  on  a daily  basis  in  all 
facets  of  museum  operations.  We  are  grateful  for  their  support. 

Physical  Plant 


The  two  antiquated  buildings  continue  to  require  massive  transfusions  of 
maintenance  and  repair  dollars.  The  heavy  public  usage  also  takes  its 
toll  on  the  buildings.  Poor  ventilation  and  the  lack  of  air  conditioning 
is  now  our  major  concern;  it  threatens  the  very  existence  of  the  art 
objects.  Also  excessive  amounts  of  natizral  light  in  some  galleries,  com- 
bined with  too  little  artificial  light  in  others,  plagues  the  exhibition 
of  our  collection;  the  one  deteriorates  most  art  objects,  and  the  other 
limits  proper  viewing. 

The  major  Renovation  Project  at  the  de  Young  Museum  was  partially  completed 
this  year.  The  new  American  Galleries  were  to  open  on  July  4.  The  new 
Cafe  de  Young  was  opened  and  has  been  steadily  growing  in  popularity. 

New  shops  and  design  studios  as  well  as  staff  offices  were  renovated. 

The  Art  School  was  preparing  to  move  into  its  new  quarters  at  year's  end. 
For  more  detailed  description  of  the  renovation  project,  see  last  year's 
Annual  Report. 

The  entrances  to  both  Museum  buildings  continue  to  provide  architectural 
barriers  to  the  physically  handicapped.  Ramps  are  needed  to  remedy  this 
situation,  A temporary  wooden  one  was  installed  at  the  Legion  of  Honor 
last  year,  but  because  of  certain  physical  limitations,  the  costs  of  a 
temporary  ramp  at  the  de  Young  are  prohibitive,  A ramp  for  the  de  Young 
was  requested  in  the  City  budget,  but  eventually  was  deleted  as  not  having 
high  enough  citywide  priority. 

Budget 

Although  our  budget  was  increased  slightly,  v;e  continue  to  look  to  other 
sources  of  revenue  as  well  as  examining  our  programming.  If  our  basic 
operating  budget  cannot  provide  adequate  personnel  and  support  funds,  we 
id.ll  be  unable  to  maintain  private  interest  in  the  museums  as  we  would  be 
forced  to  decrease  the  number  of  exhibitions  in  special  programs.  Last 
year,  the  Museum  Society's  budget  was  approximately  SJl  million. 

Admissions 

In  August  1975  the  Board  of  Trustees  decided  to  institute  an  admission 
charge  rather  than  suffer  a major  budget  cut  proposed  by  the  Board  of 
Supervisors,  It  was  implemented  December  1,  1975*  The  Museiims  are  open 
every  day  of  the  year  from  10:00  to  5:00  PM,  For  persons  age  18-65 
admission  is  750,  persons  age  12-l8,  250;  persons  under  12  or  over  65, 
Museum  Society  members.  Society  for  Asian  Art  members,  Museum  Trustees,

other  museum  professionals,  members  of  ICON,  AAM,  V/AAM,  AAMD  and  BAGAC, 
guests  as  may  be  determined  by  the  Museums,  and  members  of  organized 
educational  groups,  including  the  person  in  charge,  are  free.  Payment 
of  one  fee  covers  admission  to  the  Asian  Art  MuseiM,  M*H,  de  Young  Memorial 
Museum  and  the  California  Palace  of  the  Legion  of  Honor  on  the  same  day. 
Admission  is  free  on  the  first  day  of  the  month.  The  Museum  Society  may 
charge  a separe.te  fee  for  admission  to  Museiim  Society  sponsored  special 
exhibitions  and  events. 

The  attendance  at  the  California  Palace  of  the  Legion  of  Honor  last  year 
was  216,4^3  and  the  de  Young  Museum  was  433j587  for  a yearly  total  of 
652,030,  See  appendix  VII  for  the  museums’  admission  fund  statement  of 
revenues  and  expenditures. 

Development 

The  Development  Office  tliis  year  was  successful  in  obtaining  funds  for  a 
number  of  major  projects.  The  American  Galleries  installation  v/as  com- 
pleted vriLth  the  aid  of  private  contributions  and  Foundations  and  Federal 
grants.  The  Dovmtown  Center  obtained  sufficient  funding  to  continue  as  a 
branch  gallery  of  the  museum  for  1978-79*  In  addition  the  museums  v/ere 
awarded  grants  for  special  exhibitions,  and  internship  in  decorative  arts 
conservation,  special  video  and  out  reach  projects  for  the  de  Young  Museum 
Art  School,  and  for  equipment  for  new  conservation  laboratories  at  the 
de  Young, 

Tliis  year  sav;  an  evolution  in  the  structure  of  the  development  effort  with 
the  creation  of  a joint  committee  for  development  of  The  Fine  Arts  Museiims 
Trustees  and  the  Museum  Society,  This  committee  will  be  charged  with  the 
launching  of  a capital  campaign  later  in  1977*  The  smaller  Core  Committee 
for  development  has  also  been  organized.  It  meets  monthly  to  review  needs 
and  prospects  and  malce  assignments  for  short  term  fund  raising. 

With  the  patient  help  of  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  staff  a Five  Year  Plan  was 
updated  and  presented  in  programmatic  form  to  the  Development  Coraraittee. 

The  plan  prioritized  the  future  needs  and  goals  of  the  museimi  and  deter- 
mined five  year  cost  projections  in  the  areas  of  capital  improvements, 
personnel,  programs,  acquisitions,  and  equipment,  A list  of  grant  activities 
appear  in  Appendix  VIH,

PUBLIC  IMFOMTION  OFFICE 

The  functioning  of  the  Public  Infonmtion  Office  iras  seriously  ii.ipaired  in 
October  when  the  City,  due  to  its  financial  crisis,  deleted  funds  to  retain 
the  Museuns  * outside  public  relations  consultant.  Application  xxas  mde  to 
the  Chief  Adi.iinistrative  Officer  for  advertising  and  pronotion  funds  fron 
the  hotel  tax  to  restore  the  previous  level  of  service.  Action  on  the  re- 
quest had  not  been  taken  by  the  end  of  the  fiscal  year,  leaving  the  Public 
Informtion  Office  ilth  no  staff,  no  budget  and  no  professional  assistance. 

Hie  year’s  record  tras  not  entirely  negative  by  any  r, leans,  hoxrever,  Canpaigns 
on  belialf  of  such  exhibitions  as  As  ¥e  Were,  As  We  Are  and  Five  Centuries  of 
Tapestry  produced  a high  level  of  interest  locally  and,  in  the  case  of  the

Africa,  Oceania  & Americas 


The  Department  of  Africa,  Oceania,  and  the  Americas  focused  its  at- 
tention on  three  major  areas:  enriching  its  collections,  presenting 
exhibitions,  and  publishing. 

A number  of  fine  new  pieces  were  acquired  this  year,  many  by  Depart- 
ment Curator  Thomas  K.  Seligman  on  the  Museum  Society  Trip  to  Melanesia 
in  the  summer  of  1977.  A Washkuk  female  ancestor  figure,  two  Tambanum 
Ancestral  Masks,  and  five  Mud  Masks  from  New  Guinea  are  amongst  these 
recent  acquisitions.  Mr.  Andy  Williams  donated  his  collection  of  fifty 
Navajo  rugs  and  blankets,  and  the  North  American  Indian  collections 
further  developed  with  fourteen  Northwest  Coast  Indian  Baskets,  a 
beaded  0 j ibway  Pouch,  and  a Northern  style  Portrait  Mask  actually  carved 
in  the  gallery  by  artists  Tony  and  Calvin  Hunt.  The  African  Collection 
also  grew;  a Dan  Female  Mask  and  a Beggar  Figure  were  among  many 
other  highlights  this  year. 

Form  and  Freedom:  Indian  Art  of  the  Northwest  Coast  (CPLH:  March  25- 
May  29 , 1978)  was  the  primary  exhibition  effort.  Baskets,  boxes,  combs 
and  masks  were  among  the  one  hundred  and  two  works  of  art  dating  from 
the  late  18th  century  to  1930.  The  exhibition  was  organized  by  Rice 
University's  Institute  for  the  Arts,  in  cooperation  with  the  Metro- 
politan Museum,  and  was  drawn  from  the  collections  of  the  de  Menil 
Family  and  the  de  Menil  Family  Foundation.  Photographs,  a film  about 
the  Northwest  Coast  Culture,  carving  demonstrations,  and  a lecture 
enhanced  the  exhibition. 

In  early  1978  the  African  section  of  the  Department's  permanent  gallery 
was  entirely  re-installed  to  accomodate  the  many  recent  gifts  to  the 
Museums.  The  Department's  photography  program,  designed  to  document 
the  cultures  of  Africa,  Oceania,  and  the  Americas,  continued  with  two 
exhibitions Photographs  of  Bopieo  (de. Young:  Nov.  11-Feb.  12) , and 
Photographs  of  Southwest  Ethiopia  (de  Young:  Feb.  12-May  14)  .'  Finally, 
a large  portion  of  the  Williams  textiles  were  moved  to  the  Art  School's 
Downtown  Center,  and  Mother  Earth,  a selection  of  large  ceramic  pots 
from  the  Museums'  collection  (April  1-July  7)  was  moved  to  the  Downtown 
Center . 

The  Department  is  now  preparing  a large  exhibition  of  Huichol  Indian 
Art  to  be  on  view  in  San  Francisco  from  November  4th  through  March  4th, 
1979.  Approximately  one  hundred  and  fifty  objects  were  borrowed  from 
Museums  and  private  collections  across  the  country.  In  connection  with 
this  exhibition  the  Museums  are  co-publishing  a comprehensive  catalogue 
of  Huichol  Art  with  Harry  N.  Abrams.  The  catalogue,  which  will  be  over 
two  hundred  pages,  will  feature  illustrations  of  the  exhibition  objects 
and  essays  focusing  on  approaches  to  the  art.

Finally,  Gallery  Interpretive  Sheets,  guiding  the  visitor  through  the 
AOA  collections,  were  published,  and  the  textile  collections  were 
thoroughly  organized  and  carefully  stored. 

Dept,  of  Decorative  Arts  and  Sculpture 

Graeme  Keith  retired  as  Curator- in-Charge  after  nearly  twenty  years 
of  invaluable  service,  and  was  succeeded  by  Michael  Conforti,  who 
arrived  in  November,  1977.  At  that  time,  the  Department  was  in  the 
midst  of  exhibitions  which  would  consume  its  energies  throughout  the 
coming  year.  A stunning  exhibition  of  Renaissance  objects,  organized 
by  Mr.  Keith  and  entitled  The  Triumph  of  Humanism  (CPLH:  Oct.  22- 
Jan.  8,  1977)  featured  two  hundred  and  titty  objects  from  the  Renais- 
sance, and  included  programs  of  dance,  literature,  music,  and  lectures. 

A comprehensive  catalogue  accompanied  the  ejdiibition,  documenting  the 
objects  and  exploring  the  exhibition  through  scholarly  essays. 

The  Treasures  of  Early  Irish  Art  (de  Young:  Feb.  21-May  21,  1978)  was 
a landmark  exhibition  of  seventy  national  treasures  from  the  Republic 
of  Ireland,  and  came  to  San  Francisco  after  opening  in  New  York.  Legen- 
dary masterpieces  such  as  the  Book  of  Kells,  Tara  Brooch,  and  Brian’s 
Harp  drew  crowds  totalling  approximately  200,000,  greater  than  the  at- 
tendance at  the  Metropolotan  Museum  months  earlier. 

The  Department  also  organized  a small  exhibition  of  Continental  Por- 
celain  from  the  Permanent  Collection  and  finished  the  year  with  English 
Silver  irom  the  Untermyer  Collection  (CPLH:  June  29-Aug.  20,  1978) . 

The  staff  is  now  working  towards  the  massive  exhibition  from  the  German 
Democratic  Republic,  The  Splendor  of  Dresden:  Five  Hundred  Years  of  Art 
Collecting . which  will  fill  the  Legion  in  February,  1979,  and  The  Trea- 
sures of  Tutankhamun,  coming  to  the  de  Young  in  June  of  1979. 

Despite  this  demanding  schedule  of  exhibitions,  the  Department  managed 
to  acquire  a number  of  important  works.  An  early  19th  century  Secre- 
taire and  a large  equestrian  figure  of  Charles  III  of  Spain  from  the 
Italian  Baroque  were  notable  additions. 

The  Department  of  Decorative  Arts  and  Sculpture  encompasses  furniture, 
sculpture,  ceramics,  and  a wide  variety  of  objects  d*  art ; within  this 
broad  spectrum  are  two  important  divisions:  Textiles,  under  the  cura- 
torship  of  Anna  Bennett,  and  American  Decorative  Arts,  under  the  direc- 
tion of  Donald  Stover. 

Textiles 


The  Textiles  Division  conserves  and  presents  the  Museums'  ever-expand- 
ing collection  of  tapestries,  costumes  and  their  accessories,  rugs, 
and  textile  pieces.  The  emphasis  in  1977-78  was  on  costumes:  the  Cura- 
tor, a conservator,  and  ten  interns  and  volunteers  began  moving  each 
piece  to  new  storage  facilities,  carefully  packing  the  collection,  photo- 
graphing it  (in  order  to  minimize  future  needless  handling  of  the  ma- 
terial) , and  cataloguing  it.  This  painstaking  task  is  still  in  progress.

The  blossoming  of  interest  in  costumes  also  resulted  in  the  exhibition 
A Century  of  Brides  (de  Young:  July  22-Sept.  24,  1978)  which  presented 
twenty-one  wedding  gowns  and  twelve  cases  of  accessories  from  1826 
through  the  1920s.  This  exhibition  introduced  the  public  to  the  Mu- 
seums' little  known  collections  and  is  the  first  in  a series  of  similar 
exhibitions . 

As  the  collections  are  becoming  more  widely  known,  increasing  numbers 
of  students  are  using  the  Museums  as  a study  aid:  college  classes 
from  as  far  away  as  Tennessee  have  visited  the  Textile  laboratories 
for  slide  lectures  on  costumes,  discussions,  and  selected  samplingsof 
actual  material. 

Meanwhile,  a travelling  version  of  Five  Centuries  of  Tapestry,  which 
gathered  many  of  the  Museums ' choice  tapestries,  was  circulated  to 
other  museums  across  the  country. 

American  Decorative  Arts 

American  Decorative  Arts  is  a new  division  within  the  Department,  re- 
presenting the  Museums'  commitment  to  American  Art.  In  its  first  year 
the  division  has  begun  the  organization,  evaluation,  documentation,  and 
expansion  of  the  collection.  Twelve  new  objects  were  acquired,  includ- 
ing an  important  silver  tankard  by  the  patriot.  and  master  silversmith 
Paul  Revere. 

American  Galleries 


The  Museums ' commitment  to  American  Art  was  reaffirmed  with  the  opening 
on  July  4th,  1977,  of  the  American  Galleries,  a suite  of  eleven  gal- 
leries which  integrate  American  painting,  sculpture,  costumes,  furni- 
ture, and  decorative  arts  from  the  colonial  period  to  the  present.  In 
January  of  1978  came  the  announcement  of  the  intention  of  Mr.  and  Mrs. 
John  D.  Rockefeller,  3rd  to  donate  their  exceptional  collection  of 
American  Painting  to  the  Fine  Arts  Museums.  San  Francisco  is  on  its 
way  to  becoming  one  of  the  foremost  centers  of  American  Art  in  the  na- 
tion. 

Department  of  Paintings 

The  American  Galleries  occupied  much  of  the  attention  of  the  Depart- 
ment of  Paintings  this  year,  along  with  the  complete  rehanging  of  the 
European  paintings  collection,  excluding  the  French  School.  As  a re- 
sult, five  hundred  works  of  art  have  found  new  homes  throughout  the  Mu- 
seums .

In  addition  to  the  munificent  Rockefeller  bequest,  the  collections 
were  enriched  by  a number  of  Italian  works , including  a seventeenth 
century  masterpiece  by  Strozzi,  Market  Scene  with  Still  Life.  Also 
in  the  Italian  School,  Giovanni  Battista  Pittoni's  Descent  Trom  the 
Cross , a gift  from  the  Mildred  Anna  Williams  Fund,  brings  to  the  Mu- 
seums  our  first  representation  of  religious  art  in  the  eighteenth 
century.  Other  rare  additions  to  the  collections  included  The  Story 
of  Brutus  and  Portia,  by  Jacopo  del  Sellaio,  and  a superb  landscape 
from  the  seventeenth  century  in  France  by  Gaspard  Dughet. 

Two  major  exhibitions  were  also  sponsored:  Russian  and  Soviet  Paint- 
ings (de  Young:  Aug.  6-Oct.9,  1977)  and  In  Celebration  of  Loie  Fuller 
(CPLH:  Dec.  10,  1977-  March  26,  1978).  The  first  exhibition  featured 
one  hundred  and  twenty-five  works  of  Russian  art  from  the  twelfth  cen- 
tury to  the  present;  Loie  Fuller  combined  paintings,  drawings,  sculp- 
ture, and  costumes  to  honor  the  renowned  tum-of-the-century  dancer. 

Achenbach  Foundation  for  the  Graphic  Arts 

The  Achenbach  Foundation,  which  serves  as  the  Museums'  Department  of 
Prints  and  Drawings,  houses  the  largest  collection  of  graphics  in  the 
Western  United  States.  In  March  of  this  year  Fenton  Kastner  retired 
after  thirteen  and  one-half  years  of  conscientious  service  as  Curator, 
and  was  honored  in  May  of  1978  with  an  exhibition  entitled  A Tribute 
to  Fenton  Kastner  (CPLH:  May  15-July  31,  1978),  which  presented  signi- 
ficant purchases  made  during  his  years  as  Curator-in-Charge . 

Under  the  direction  of  Robert  Flynn  Johnson,  fourteen  drawings  and 
thirty-five  prints  were  selected  for  purchase  this  year,  including 
drawings  by  Hokusai  and  Toulouse  Lautrec,  and  prints  by  Frankenthaler 
and  many  other  masters  • Much  of  the  collection's  growth  sprang  from 
the  generosity  of  a number  of  donors,  who  presented  forty-three  draw- 
ings and  two  hundred  and  ninety  prints . 

The  Department  was  responsible  for  seventeen  exhibitions  throughout 
the  year.  Most  exhibitions  drew  primarily  upon  the  resources  of  the 
Foundation,  and  ranged  from  North  European  engravings  to  Indian  minia- 
tures . 

The  use  of  the  Achenbach  as  a teaching  resource  for  the  community  is 
a prime  responsibility.  Classes  of  art  historians,  artists,  and  grad- 
uate  students  have  met  with  the  staff  for  seminars  and  private  viewings 
of  the  collections. 

The  Graphic  Arts  Council  doubled  its  membership  this  year  under  strong 
leadership  and  sponsored  the  Graphic  Arts  Council  Members'  Exhibition 
(January  19-March  5,  1978)  during  the  winter.

Department  of  Exhibitions 

The  Department  of  Exhibitions  was  involved  in  the  planning,  coordina- 
tion, and  mounting  of  twenty-three  exhibitions,  with  an  additional 
five  shows  installed  at  the  Downtown  Center.  Many  of  these  are  des- 
cribed in  the  individual  departmental  summaries.  Two  of  these,  Russian 
and  Soviet  Painting  and  Treasures  of  Early  Irish  Art  were  major  inter- 
national exhibitions,  absorbing  much  of  the  staff's  energies  and  time. 

Two  more  international  exhibitions.  The  Splendor  of  Dresden:  Five 
Hundred  Years  of  Art  Collecting  and  Treasures  of  Tut ankhamun  will  be 
shown  at  the  Legion  of  Honor  and  the  de  Young  Museiim  respectively, 
in  the  coming  year.  In  preparation  for  these  two  major  exhibits,  both 
buildings  are  under  construction  with  major  capital  improvements.  New 
flooring,  roofing,  lighting,  climate  control,  and  moveable  walls  are 
being  installed  in  the  temporary  exhibition  galleries  at  the  de  Young. 

A similar  climate  control  system  is  being  installed  at  the  Legion. 

These  improvements  will  not  only  accomodate  these  particular  exhibi- 
tions, but  will  also  enhance  the  Museums'  ability  to  attract  future  shows. 

Registrars 

The  Registrars  act  as  custodians  of  all  art  objects  owned  and  borrowed 
by  the  Museums.  Each  piece  must  be  documented,  and  its  physical,  legal, 
and  insurance  protection  assured.  The  permanent  collection  alone  num- 
bers nearly  sixty  thousand  works,  while  the  volume  of  temporary  objects 
processed  in  1977-78  numbered  around  six  thousand. 

Previously  the  Registrar  at- each  building  functioned  independently; 
this  year  steps  were  made  to  consolidate  the  two  Registrars  into  a 
single  team.  The  method  of  record-keeping  was  made  uniform,  and  a cen- 
tralized system  for  ordering  photographs  was  established.  The  Registrars 
also  worked  together  in  de-accessioning  a large  group  of  furniture. 

A new  policy  was  instituted  which  periodically  reassigned  each  staff 
from  one  Museum  to  the  other,  so  that  each  Registrar  will  be  familiar 
with  both  operations . The  result  is  that  they  will  be  able  to  concen- 
trate efforts  at  whichever  building  is  busier,  such  as  during  the  up- 
coming large  international  exhibitions.  An  Assistant  Registrar  posi- 
tion was  added  by  the  Museum  Society  to  facilitate  this  interchange. 

We  note  with  regret  and  respect  the  passing  of  Frederick  Snowden  who 
served  ably  for  six  years  and  nine  months  as  Registrar  of  the  de  Young 
Museum. 

Library 

The  Library  is  housed  in  the  de  Young  Museum  and  contains  twenty 
thousand  volumes,  plus  numerous  sales  and  auction  catalogues  and  bound 
periodicals .

It  is  available  to  the  public  by  appointment,  and  the  library  staff 
answers  hundreds  of  reference  questions  by  telephone  and  mail  each 
year.  In  the  first  half  of  1978,  two  professional  librarians  managed 
the  facility.  This  was  later  reorganized  to  consist  of  one  librarian, 
assisted  by  three  part-time  volunteers.  A total  of  eight  hundred 
and  eleven  books  were  added  to  the  collection.  Nearly  sixty  periodi- 
cals are  currently  received.  Moreover,  an  exchange  program  of  museum 
catalogues  sent  nearly  two  hundred  copies  to  participating  museums 
and  libraries. 

Publications 


The  Publications  Department,  funded  by  the  Museum  Society,  is  respon- 
sible for  all  aspects  of  the  Museums'  publishing  program,  from  com- 
pletion of  the  manuscript  through  the  bound  book  and  its  distribution. 
This  year  has  seen  the  completion  of  three  new  volumes:  The  Triumph 
of  Humanism  in  October  of  1977;  Rodin's  Sculpture  and  Four  Centuries 
of  French  Drawings  in  March  of  1978 . 

A number  of  projects  are  nearing  completion:  Art  of  the  Huichol  is 
on  schedule  for  completion  in  September  of  19781  The  Arts  of  tTie 
Tapestry  Symposium,  which  will  be  completed  in  fall  of  1978,  will  be 
a useful  companion  piece  to  Five  Centuries  of  Tapestry  (published  in 
November  1976) . The  Fine  Arts  Museums  are  also  collaborating  with 
Apollo  Magazine  to  produce  two  issues  of  the  magazine  devoted  to  FAMSF. 
This  publication  is  scheduled  for  early  1979. 

Three  scheduled  projects  have  been  changed:  French  Paintings  has  been 
postponed  for  a year;  A Tribute  to  Walter  Heil  is  undergoing  a change 
of  format;  and  Flemish  Paintings  will  become  part  of  a larger  catalogue 
of  European  paintings  in  the  collections. 

Education  Division 


Public  Programs,  the  de  Young  Museum  Art  School,  Docents,  Volunteer 
Council,  and  the  Department  of  Interpretation  all  fall  under  the 
Education  Division.  Each  group's  activities  are  reviewed  here  separately. 

Public  Programs 

The  Department  of  Public  Programs  provided  educational  support, 
enhancement,  and  amplification  of  the  exhibition  program  for  the 
Museums.  This  was  accomplished  through  lectures,  demonstrations,  and 
concerts  which  compliment  the  visual  arts.  The  attendance  for  events 
produced  soared  to  over  thirty-four  thousand  in  1977-1978.

Over  one  thousand  people  attended  a three  day  symposium  on  Early 
Irish  Art  and  Culture.  Similar  programs  surrounded  Russian  and  Soviet 
Painting  and  The  Triumph  of  Humanism,  and  a dance  exhibition  accompanied 
In  Celebration  of  Loie  Fuller. 

Relationships  with  Bay  Area  performing  groups  were  renewed  and  expanded 
in  1978.  For  the  second  season  the  Fine  Arts  Museums  worked  together 
with  the  Recreation  and  Park  Department  and  the  San  Francisco  Guitar 
Society  to  produce  a series  of  concerts  in  the  Museums'  theatre  and 
auditorium.  The  San  Francisco  Attic  Theater  worked  once  again  with  the 
Museums,  this  time  to  produce  three  separate  runs  of  several  different 
productions.  The  San  Francisco  Chamber  Orchestra  once  again  drew 

overflow  crowds  and  critical  acclaim  for  its  Twilight  Concerts  series , 
presented  in  the  Little  Theater  of  the  Legion.  A new  fall/winter  series, 
"Sunday  Strings"  grew  from  this  success,  and  presented  recitals  by 
orchestra  members  on  Sunday  afternoons. 

The  Little  Theater  was  also  the  site  for  the  Second  Bay  Area  Playwrights 
Festival  in  April  and  May  of  1978.  Growing  from  the  first  Festival  in 
1976 , it  presented  world  premieres  of  five  plays  by  regional  and  national 
authors . 

Finally,  the  fifty-year  tradition  of  organ  concerts  each  Saturday  and 
SLinday  at  the  Legion  continued  under  the  able  musicianship  of  organists 
Ludwig  Altman  and  Newton  Pashley. 

Art  School 

Another  major  aspect  of  the  Education  Division  is  the  de  Young  Museum 
Art  School,  which  conducts  four  programs:  1)  The  Museum  Art  School 
housed  in  the  de  Young,  2)  the  Trip-Out  Trucks,  3)  The  Downtown  Center, 
and  4)  the  Internship  Program. 

1.  THE  DE  YOUNG  MUSEUM  ART  SCHOOL  is  committed  to  providing  low-cost 
classes  taught  by  professional  artists  to  Bay  Area  residents.  Over 
one  hundred  classes,  special  workshops,  and  art-related  field  trips 
are  offered  in  four  quarter  semesters.  The  School  is  a non-profit 
corporation  and  is  entirely  supported  by  students'  fees.

In  addition  to  the  regular  class  program,  a summer  intern  program  for 
teenagers,  funded  by  the  NEA  Expansion  Arts  Program,  allowed  eight  teen- 
agers to  assist  with  childrens'  classes  and  to  serve  as  apprentices 
to  teachers  at  the  Art  School. 

2.  THE  TRIP-OUT  TRUCKS  visit  school  classrooms  four  times  each  year 
in  an  effort  to  integrate  art  into  the  school  curriculum  (through 
studio-art  classes,  lectures,  and  demonstrations)  and  to  initiate  the 
teacher  to  using  the  Museums  as  an  educational  resource.  This  year  the 
Trip-Out-Trucks  visited  one  hundred  and  one  schools,  or  eight  hundred 
and  eight  classrooms,  which  totalled  twenty-eight  thousand,  two  hun- 
dred and  forty  participating  students.  Also,  eight  childcare  centers 
and  four  community  centers  (translating  to  eleven  hundred  and  sixty 
children  total)  were  visited.  The  trucks  also  visited  nine  special 
events  around  San  Francisco,  and  in  so  doing  came  in  contact  with  nearly 
fifteen  thousand  people. 

Funding  for  1977-1978  was  as  follows: 


City  & County  of  SF  $ 500.00 
CETA  salaries,  SF  32,000.00 
Museum  Society  15 , 000 . 00 


TOTAL $47,500.00 


3.  THE  DOWNTOWN  CENTER,  established  in  1976,  is  a branch  gallery  of 
the  Museums  located  in  the  downtown  business  district.  During  the 
year  the  Center  held  six  major  exhibitions  with  supporting  programs 
directed  towards  artists,  school  grounds,  and  importantly,  the  business 
community.  An  estimated  forty-eight  thousand  people  visited  these 
exhibitions;  nine  thousand,  eight  hundred  and  ninety  participated  in 
lectures  and  demonstrations,  and  an  additional  eighteen  thousand 
children  visited  the  Center  for  special  tours  and  programs.  The  Center 
is  open  five  days  a week,  Tuesday  through  Saturday,  11  am  to  6 pm. , 
and  is  moving  from  651  Howard  Street  to  more  convenient  quarters  at 
Three  Embarcadero  Center.

4.  THE  MUSEUM  INTERNSHIP  PROGRAM  selected  six  fellows  from  the 
Western  United  States  to  work  and  study  at  the  Museums.  Funded  by 
the  NEA  and  the  Rockefeller  Foundation,  the  program  assists  the  Mu- 
seums in  achieving  national  visibility  for  its  education  programs, 
and  helps  other  museums  initiate  programs  for  their  communities. 

In  the  summer  and  fall  of  1977,  and  spring  of  1978,  the  following 
people  were  selected:  Kathy  Zimmerer,  Israel  Alcantar,  William 
Sandoval,  Randy  Holladay,  John  Sierra,  and  Michael  Milligan. 

Docent  Council 


A Docent  is  a selected  and  trained  volunteer,  who  conducts  tours  of  the 
Museums'  permanent  collections  and  special  exhibitions.  Aside  from 
the  regular  series  of  tours  in  the  Africa,  Oceania  and  Americas  and 
Western  Areas,  the  Docents  conduct  a School  Program  and  tours  for  the 
deaf  and  the  visually  handicapped.  The  Docents  are  also  active  in  the 
Asian  Art  Museum.  Of  the  three  hundred  and  nine  active  Docents,  thirty- 
four  successfully  completed  their  qualifications  this  past  year  for  the 
Africa,  Oceania  and  Americas  galleries,  and  thirty-one  for  the  Western 
Areas .

five  tours  given  to  one  thousand  and  fifty-six  visitors  in  both  the  AAM 
and  the  Fine  Arts  Museums ; the  Visually  Handicapped  Program  conducted 
fifty-three  tours  to  one  thousand,  five  hundred  and  thirty-eight  visi- 
tors .

Department  of  Interpretation 

The  Docent  Tours  are  one  of  the  responsibilities  of  the  Department  of 
Interpretation,  which  develops  labels,  wall  panels,  brochures , audio- 
visual presentations  and  other  means  of  enhancing  the  visitor's  museum 
experience.  Curriculum  pamphlets  and  teachers'  workshops  have  been 
produced,  self-guided  tours  developed,  and  gallery  sheets  prepared. 

With  the  Museums'  growing  concern  for  the  special  needs  of  disabled  vi- 
sitors, several  programs  were  offered  and  others  are  being  planned  for 
the  coming  year.  The  Department  designed  an  exhibition  of  photographs 
of  the  late  nineteenth  century  deaf  photographer  Theophilus  Hope  d' 
Estrella,  accompanied  by  a brochure  about  the  artist,  and  printed  by 
the  students  of  the  California  School  for  the  Deaf. 

Volunteer  Council 


Volunteers  are  an  important  ingredient  in  the  successful  implementa- 
tion of  the  Museums'  many  programs.  For  special  exhibitions  they 
served  as  membership  information  specialists,  sold  tickets,  catalogues, 
and  posters,  and  helped  to  host  members'  receptions.  Throughout  the 
year  volunteers  provided  assistance  to  Museum  staff,  worked  in  the 
bookshop  and  information  desks , and  performed  a variety  of  valuable 
services.  This  year  two  hundred  and  sixty-six  volunteers  contributed 
over  thirty-five  thousand  hours  of  their  time.  At  current  City  pay 
rates,  this  contribution  represents  a minimum  of  $215,000  in  services 
to  the  public.  Two  new  programs  were  begun:  Museum  Surveillance  at 
the  Legion  side  door  and  Information  Volunteers  in  the  galleries  of 
the  de  Young. 

Administration 


The  Museums  experienced  a 197o  increase  in  attendance  over  the  last 
fiscal  year,  with  616,000  visitors  to  the  de  Young  building  and 
187,466  to  the  Legion  of  Honor,  for  a total  of  803,566.  This  repre- 
sents a partial  recovery  toward  the  1,000,000  annual  level  attained 
before  admission  fees  were  instituted  in  1975,  when  the  Museums  suf- 
fered a 37%  drop  in  attendance.  Total  admission  revenue  collected 
for  1977-1978  was  $358,461. 

Plans  for  access  ramps  for  the  handicapped  and  for  installation  of 
heating,  ventilating,  and  air-conditioning  systems  at  both  buildings 
were  developed  in  preparation  for  the  two  international  exhibitions 
in  1979.  (see  page  5). 

The  Museums  have  added  several  administrative  and  curatorial  staff 
members  with  temporary  private  funding  to  handle  logistics  and  plan- 
ning for  these  exhibitions.  On  the  permanent  staff  there  is  a lack 
of  clerical  support  and  security  personnel,  which  becomes  more  criti- 
cal each  year.  The  permanent  guard  force  of  thirty-three  is  augmented 
by  nineteen  CETA  guards ; five  CETA  clerical  workers  aided  the  permanent 
clerical  staff  of  four.

Africa,  Oceania  and  the  Americas 


The  Department  of  Africa,  Oceania  and  the  Americas  had  a very  active  and  pro- 
ductive ye^  in  the  areas  of  collections , exhibitions , publications , related 
projects  and  future  planning. 

In  the  area  of  collections  and  acquisitions,  the  planning,  legal  work  and  ne- 
gotiations got  under  way  for  a substantial  donation  of  wall  paintings  from 
Mexico.  This  involved  cataloging  and  uncrating,  photographing,  storing  and 
researching  the  collection  with  aid  from  outside  consultants . ^ Iirportant 
acquisitions  for  the  Africa,  Oceanic  and  Pre-Columbian  collections  continued 
as  did  a steacfy  stream  of  donations  frcm  Bay  Area  collectors.  A complete  con- 
servation report  and  assessment  was  performed  on  the  City's  collections,  both 
those  in  storage  and  on  permanent  display. 

Exhibitions  included  "The  Art  of  Being  Hiiichol",  a major  e^diibition  of  over 
200  objects  \diich  was  originated  by  tdie  Museums  and  traveled  to  Chicago  and 
New  York  after  its  initial  showing  in  San  Francisco;  "Mother  Earth:  A Sele- 
ction of  Ceramic  Containers  From  the  Permanent  Collections";  "Scrimshaw": 
"Photographs  of  Southern  Ethiopia";  "Photographs  of  Micronesia";  and  a display 
of  Navajo  blankets  frcm  the  Museums  collection.  Plans  for  a major  reinstallation 
of  the  permanent  collectico  in  the  Gallery  of  Africa,  Oceania  and  the  Americas 
were  also  instituted. 

A major  publication  was  produced  by  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  and  co-piiblished  with 
Harry  N.  Abrams  Inc.  : Art  of  Huichol  Indians  (200  pp.  ,over  100  b/w  photographs 
and  40  colorplates) . Forthccming  articles  on  "Maori  Art  and  Artistry",  empha- 
sizing the  finest  Maori  pieces  in  the  City's  collections,  and  an  article  on 
Islam  and  our  African  Tribal  Mask  were  written  for  Apollo  magazine.  "The  Art  of 
Being  Huichol",  an  article  explaining  the  development  o£  the  exhibition,  was 
written  for  Natural  His to:^  Ifagazine.  The  Fine  Arts  Miseums  were  also  repre- 
sented at  the  annual  meeting  of  the  American- Association  of  Museums  with  a paper 
presented  on  this  exhibition. 

Other  projects  completed  this  year  were  a docent  training  series  on  the  art  of 
Oceania,  reorganization  of  the  storage  areas  and  registration  procedures,  partic- 
ipation in  the  Oakland  Museum  Wilcomb  Grant  Project,  as  well  as  participation 
in  a special  project  involving  San  Francisco  Unified  Schools  and  objects  the 
Museums  have  placed  on  long  term  loan  for  use  in  study  kits  in  elementary  schools. 
Three  major  grants  were  written  by  the  department  and  submitted  to  federal  agencies. 
Proposals  included : AOA  Conservator  (IIB) , Aesthetics  of  Power : Secret  Societies 
on  the  Western  Guinea  Coast  of  Africa  (NEH)  vdiich  was  funded,  and  Teotihuacan 
Morals  Conservation  Planning  Grant  (NEA)  . 

The  year  closed  with  plans  proceeding  on  five  public  exhibitions  and  active 
reinstallation  of  a major  portion  of  the  City's  collections  and  educational 
presentations  in  the  permanent  gallery  of  Africa,  Oceania  and  the  Americas,  the 
Introductory  Gallery  and  Gallery  H.

Decorative  Arts  and  Sculpture 


The  past  year  has  been  one  of  tremendous  activity  for  this  department.  In 
addition  to 'working  and  continuing  research  on  the  permanent  collection,  we 
have  also  devoted  much  time  and  energy  to  the  two  major  exhibitions  of  this 
year,  "The  Splendor  of  Dresden" (CPLH  February  - llay  31,  1979)  and  "The 
Treasures  of  Tutankhaniun"  (de  Young  May  31  - SeptGE±)er  30,  1979).  In  pre- 
paring for  'Dresden",  the  CPLH  had  to  be  entirely  de- installed  and  redesigned, 
with  its  collection  going  either  into  storage  or  on  loan  to  other  museums. 

Now  that  "Dresden"  is  over,  we  are  in  the  process  of  reinstalling  the  Legion, 
an  exciting  but  difficult  project.  In  conjunction  with  "Dresden",  the  depart- 
ment organized  a successful  weekend  seminar.  The  ''Tutankhamun''  e^^bition 
also  necessitated  the  de-installation  of  part  of  the  de  Young,  and  we  are 
currently  preparing  for  reinstallation  there  as  well  as  at  the  Legion.  These 
two  major  shows  precluded  any  other  large  in-house  exhibitions;  however,  the 
Textile  Department  did  organize  several  smaller  ones  which  are  mentioned 
below. 

During  this  hectic  period,  the  department  continued  to  make  inportant  acqui- 
sitions such  as  George  I brass  inlaid  majogany  side  table  by  the  noted  English 
cabinetmaker,  John  Chamon,  a Chinese  export  lacquer  side  chair  of  the  Queen 
Anne  period,  an  early  eighteenth-century  Italian  altar  frontal  embroidered  in 
gold,  and  a nineteenth-century  terra-cotta  bust  of  Diane  by  Flaguiere.  We  also 
received  several  gifts  from  Mrs.  Dorothy  Spreckles  Muam,  including  a French 
Enpire  mahogany  and  gilt  bronze  side  board,  c.  1810,  a Paris  porcelain  orni- 
thological dessert  service,  c.  1820,  and  a pair  of  Meissen  vases,  c.  1750. 

The  above  activities  and  the  necessary  research  involved,  combined  with  the 
day-to-day  dealings  with  the  public  and  with  other  museums,  have  made  this  a 
very  busy  year  in  the  department. 


Textiles 


This  year  marked  the  retirement  of  Anna  Bennett  as  full-time  Curator  of 
Textiles.  As  a result  of  the  years  of  dedicated  work  put  in  by  Mrs.  Bennett 
and  her  husband  Ralph,  the  department  has  emerged  as  one  of  the  finest  in  the 
country.  Mrs.  Bennett  is  continuing  to  work  in  the  department  on  an  exhibition 
and  catalog  of  its  eighteenth- century  European  fans.  During  the  year,  the  de- 
partment presented  several  shows:  "A  Century  of  Brides"  and  "Victorian  Acces- 
sories" (de  Young,  July  22  - September  24,  1978);  "Persian  Tribal  Rugs  Frcm  the 
Collection  of  H.  McCoy- Jones"  (de  Young,  June  1 - Septorber  30,  1979)  and 
"Tapestries:  15th  - 20th  Centuries"  (Transamerica  I^ramid,  July  25  - September 
10,  1979). 

The  department  also  made  several  loans  for  exhibitions  in  Utah  and  Virginia. 

The  permanent  collection  continues  to  expand  with  various  gifts  frcm  Mrs . 

Leslie  Roos,  Mrs.  D.L.  Wemple,  and  Mrs.  A.F.  Jostes.  As  with  the  other  de- 
partments in  the  museim,  the  textile  department  is  very  involved  with  the  re- 
installation  of  the  Legion  and  in  the  past  year,  has  been  working  on  the  con- 
servation of  many  of  the  Mjseums'  tapestries  and  tapes  try- covered  chairs.

Wit±i  its  new  storage  facilities  and  large  volunteer  conservation  staff,  the 
department  is  looking  forward  to  another  year  of  expansion  and  development. 


American  Galleries 


Ihe  American  Galleries,  now  entering  their  third  year,  have  become  a center 
for  the  study  and  enjoyment  of  American  art.  In  addition  to  a large  general 
visitation,  the  galleries  are  increasingly  being  used  by  classes  and  student 
groups  from  the  Bay  Area.  These  activities  are  sij^jplemented  by  gallery  talks 
lectures  and  regularly  scheduled  Docent  tours. 

The  tenporary  closing  of  the  American  Galleries,  necessitated  by  construction 
in  adjacent  areas,  provided  the  opportunity  for  a major  reinstallation  of  the 
galleries.  This  reinstallation  includes  works  not  previously  exhibited  and 
recent  acquisitions  to  the  collection,  including  a selection  of  works  of  art 
from  the  bequest  of  Mr.  John  D.  Rockefeller  3rd. 


Department  of  Paintings 

Rockefeller  Bequest 

Through  thought  and  action  the  late  John  D.  Rockefeller  3rd  manifested  his 
desire  to  serve  his  fellow  man.  His  benefactions  towards  the  study  of  world 
population  growth  and  the . understanding  of  Asian  cultures  will  long  have  an 
impact  on  the  world.  Of  imnediate  inportance  to  us  is  the  collection  of 
American  art  vdiich  had  been  premised  to  San  Francisco  just  months  before  his 
tragic  death  and  which  his  family  presented  to  the  Miseums.  Long  acknowledged 
as  the  finest  private  collection  of  American  art,  this  magnificent  gift  brings 
San  Francisco  to  the  forefront  as  a center  for  the  study  of  our  national  artistic 
heritage.  The  gift  augments  the  permanent  collection  with  the  work  of  forty- 
three  artists  \dio  previously  had  been  unrepresented.  At  the  same  time,  the  works 
of  artists  such  as  Eastman  Johnson  and  Albert  Bierstadt  can  now  be  studied  in 
depth  through  multiple  examples . One  nust  also  note  the  unusually  high  concen- 
tration and  quality  of  early  American  portraiture,  outstanding  contributions 
in  the  areas  of  tronpe  l*oeil  painting,  and  individual  masterpieces  by  artists 
such  as  Bingh^,  Anshutz,  and  Grant  Wood.  Mr.  Rockefeller's  challenge  to  us  to 
form  a significant  center  for  the  study  of  American  art  is  one  that  we  will 
meet  with  enthusiasm  in  the  ceming  years . 

Acquisitions 

Althou^  few  in  number  - in  part  reflecting  the  depletion  of  funds  in  the  Mildred 
Anna  Williams  Trust  - acquisitions  have  been  of  the  greatest  importance.  The 
opportunity  to  acquire  a rare  and  beautiful  marriage  salver,  Diana  and  Acteon; 
Jj^tice , was  realized  by  the  San  Francisco  Foundation,  which  presented  this 
Florentine  double-sided  panel  (ca.  1400)  to  the  Roscoe  and  Margaret  Oakes  Col- 
lection. Possibly  by  the  Lazzaroni  Master,  an  anonymous  artist  working  in  the 
circle  of  Lorenzo  di  Nicolo  Gerini,  it  is  among  the  earliest  and  best  preserved 
salvers  known  today.  Funds  remaining  in  the  Mildred  Anna  Williams  Trust  were 
used  to  purchase  the  Jiiseums'  most  important  French  portrait,  a masterpiece  by

Baron  Gerard,  La  Cantesse  de  ^brel-Vinde  and  her  Daughter  Claire.  Standing 
two  meters  high,  this  work  had  been  exhibited  in  the  Salon  of  1798  and  had 
remained  with  descendants  of  the  sitter  until  coming  to  San  Francisco.  Of 
equal  iiipoitance  to  the  French  collections  is  the  acquisition  of  George 
Seurat's  The  Eiffel  Tower.  In  its  innovative  technique  and  modem  subject 
matter,  this  work  represents  the  apogee  of  Seurat's  brief  career.  Signif- 
icant gifts  of  landscape  paintings  joined  the  collections  this  year.  A canvas 
by  Thomas  Barker  of  Bath,  a gift  of  Mrs.  Alfred  Ehrman,  extends  our  under- 
standing of  late  eighteenth-century  English  art.  A work  by  Sanford  Gifford 
from  Mr.  and  Lfrs.  Will  Richeson,  Jr.  adds  to  the  Auierican  Galleries  a major 
luminous  painting.  Harry  William  and  Diane  Vernon  Hind's  gift  of  two  paintings, 
one  by  Ernest  Lawson  and  another  by  Albert  Bierstadt,  enhanced  our  growing 
collection  in  these  respective  areas.  For  their  continuing  support  and  loans 
of  paintings,  Peter  and  Jacqueline  Hoefer,  R.  Lockwood  Tower,  Dr.  Joseph  Shaw,  Mrs. 
Jacob  Kaplan,  and  Dr.  William  P.  Jordan  and  two  anonymous  lenders  receive  our 
warmest  thanks. 

Exhibitions  and  Loans 

In  preparation  for  "The  Treasures  of  Tutankhamun'',  the  American  paintings  were 
relocated  on  several  occasions  to  insure  their  safety  while  the  adjacent  galleries 
were  renovated.  Of  greater  inportance  to  the  department  was  the  preparation  for 
"The  Splendor  of  Dresden".  Since  the  French  collections  would  not  be  available 
during  most  of  this  report  period,  forty-five  of  our  best  paintings  traveled  to 
Denver,  New  York,  and  Minneapolis  with  twenty- two  drawings  in  the  exhibition 
"Ilasterpieces  of  French  Art".  Individual  loans  included  our  Le  Nain  Pedants 
Before  Their  House  to  Paris  for  the  major  retrospective  on  the  Le  Nain  family, 
and  Sargent's  A Bottle  of  Claret  and  Whitsler's  The  Gold  Scab  to  inportant 
exhibitions . 

Conservation 

Iftider  the  supervision  of  Mrs.  Teri  Oikawa-Picante , our  French  paintings  were 
examined  and  prepared  for  traveling.  At  the  same  time,  full  attention  was  given 
to  the  spectacular  loans  from  Dresden.  Work  proceeded  on  the  permanent  collections 
with  major  attention  being  given  to  our  two  inportant  paintings  by  Boucher,  now 
returned  to  their  original  format;  Largilliere's  Portrait  of  the  Marquis  de 
t^ntespan,  David's  Portrait  of  the  Baroness  Meuniir,  and  The  Flagellation  o^f 
Christ  by  the  Master  of  Kappenberg. 

Staff  and  Research 

The  departmental  files  were  reorganized  by  Marie  Luise  Huntington,  Northern 
European;  Dorothy  Kenper,  English  and  American;  Mary  Small,  Italian  and  Spanish; 
Marion  C.  Stewart,  French.  With  this  inproved  efficiency,  information  and  docu- 
mentation were  made  more  readily  available  for  the  special  numbers  of  Apollo 
magazine  devoted  to  the  Mjseums'  as  well  as  for  the  continuing  work  on  the 
European  paintings  cataloges. 

At  the  close  of  this  report  period  we  still  have  no  information  concerning  the 
Christmas  eve  theft  of  Rembrandt's  Portrait  of  a Rabbi,  Delorme's  Interior  of 
the  St.  Lawrence  Church,  van  der  Velde's  Harbor  Scene  or  van  der  Neer's  Moonlight 
Scene.

Achenbach  Foundation  for  Graphic  Arts 


IMs  year  t±ie  Achenbach  Foundation  for  Graphic  Arts'  normal  exhibition  pro- 
gram, with'-new  exhibitions  scheduled  every  two  or  three  months,  was  severely 
curtailed  because  of  the  Museums'  comnitiiient  to  "Treasures  of  Tutanhkamum" 
and  "The  Splendor  of  Dresden"  exhibitions.  Two  exhibitions,  the  annual  "Re- 
cent Acquisitions"  and  "French  19th  Century  Drawings  from  the  Permanent  Col- 
lection", were  abruptly  terminated  viien  an  unforeseen  emergency  in  the  reno- 
vation of  the  building  closed  the  Legion  more  than  a month  ahead  of  schedule. 
However,  during  the  Dresden  e>diibition  the  department  organized  two  exhibitions 
frcm  the  permanent  collection  designed  to  it:  "European  Drawings  1570-1800" 
and  "German  Expressionist  Prints  and  Drawings".  At  the  de  Young  fLiseum,  the 
Achenbach  Foundation  for  Graphic  Arts  was  responsible  for  several  small  print 
exhibitions:  "Italian  Renaissance  Prints"  and  "Dutch  I^Iamerist  Prints"  and,  in 
the  American  Galleries,  "J.  Alden  Weir"  and  "Wbodengravings  After  Winslow  Homer". 
"Still  Life:  20th  Century  American  Prints,  Drawings  and  Watercolors  Frcm  the 
Achenbach  Fomdation  for  Graphic  Arts"  was  organized  in  May  for  the  Downtown 
Center.  In  the  next  two  years,  the  Western  Association  of  Art  Museums  will 
circulate  to  eight  institutions  an  exhibit  of  61  prints  entitled  "Artists' 
Portraits  and  Self  Portraits".  These  works  were  selected  from  two  larger 
exhibitions  on  the  same  subject  drawn  frcm  the  permanent  collection  and  ex- 
hibited in  the  gallery  at  the  Legion  of  Honor  in  1976  and  1977. 

Despite  the  curtailment  of  exhibitions,  the  Achenbach  Foundation  for  Graphic 
Arts  has  continued  to  be  a teaching  resource  for  classes,  individual  scholars, 
and  other  visitors  at  nearly  the  usual  rate.  Loans  to  other  institutions  have, 
if  anything,  increased  over  the  past  year. 

Gifts  and  bequests  of  prints,  drawings  and  posters  have  continued  at  a remark- 
able rate,  supplementing  and  enriching  an  acquisition  program  that  continues  to 
strengthen  the  quality  and  diversity  of  the  collection.  A relatively  quiet  ex- 
hibition schedule  has  allowed  more  time  to  research,  catalog  and  mat  these  fine 
acquisitions . 

The  dramatic  rise  of  interest  in  the  Graphic  Arts  Council  has  been  of  the  utmost 
inportance.  A large  nuriber  of  the  greatly  increased  membership  have  attended  a 
variety  of  programs,  such  as  lectures,  round  table  discussions,  and  field  trips. 
Ihe  Council  has  also  presented  several  important  works  to  the  collection.  The 
board  of  the  Graphic  Arts  Council,  with  Ifrs.  Richard  Lockwood  Tower  as  its  hard- 
working and  conscientious  chairman,  has  provided  both  support  and  enthusiasm. 

The  library  remains  the  responsibility  of  Brenda  Palley  and  Martha  McDaniel 
under  Jane  Nelson's  direction.  Without  the  loyalty  and  efficiency  of  Cheryl 
Faus  and  conservation  technician  Niccolo  Caldararo,  the  department  would  not 
function.  In  December,  1978  Maxine  Ross  ton  was  promoted  to  assistant  curator. 
When  Aimee  Troyen,  formerly  with  the  Yale  Center  for  British  Art,  arrived  in 
June  1979,  to  assume  her  duties  as  assistant  curator,  the  department  was 
brought  to  full  strength  for  the  first  time  since  Fenton  Kastner's  retirement 
in  March,  1978.

Department  of  Exhibitions 

The  Department  of  Exhibitions  was  responsible  for  the  planning,  coordinating 
and  mountii^  of  eleven  exhibitions,  and  two  major  reinstallations  of  the  per- 
manent collection.  TWo  of  the  temporary  exhibitions,  "The  Splendor  of  Dresden: 
Five  Centuries  of  Art  Collecting"  and  "The  Treasures  of  Tutankhamun" , were  among 
the  most  inportant  ever  to  be  shewn  in  the  United  States. 

In  late  1978,  the  California  Palace  of  the  Legion  of  Honor  was  completely  cleared 
of  the  permanent  collection  to  accomnodate  the  installation  of  a gallery  climate 
control  system  for  "The  Splendor  of  Dresden".  Over  seven  hundred  objects  were 
displayed  from  February  24  to  June  3,  1979,  setting  a record  for  the  largest 
traveling  esdiibition  in  this  country,  attracting  a total  attendance  of  544,516. 
The  permanent  collection  will  be  reinstalled  during  the  autum  of  1979  and  will 
reflect  a new  interpretation  of  the  Miseums'  collections. 

At  the  M.H.  de  Young  Memorial  Hiseim,  approximately  10,000  square  feet  of  tem- 
porary exhibition  gallery  space  were  renovated,  and  a climate  control  system 
was  installed  to  acccoinodate  "The  Treasures  of  Tutankhamun"  extiibition.  On 
display  from  June  1 to  September  30 , 1979 , it  drew  a record-breaking  attendance 
of  approximately  1,367,000,  the  largest  ever  for  such  an  event  in  San  Francisco. 

Both  of  these  exhibitions  focused  national  attention  on  The  Fine  Arts  Miseums  of 
San  Francisco,  causing  mertbership  in  the  Miseum  Society  to  reach  78,000,  the 
largest  such  membership  in  the  Ihited  States.  The  capital  improvements  required 
for  each  show  (climate  control  systems , equipment  purchase , renovated  galleries , 
new  roofing  and  lifting)  will  have  future  benefits  for  preserving  the  permanent 
collection  and  will  also  increase  the  Museums'  ability  to  attract  exhibitions  of 
equal  stature  in  the  future. 


Registration 

A principal  function  of  the  Registration  Department  is  to  record  and  supply  in- 
formation about  the  over  60,000  works  of  art  in  the  Museums'  custody,  as  well  as  an 
increasing  volume  of  tenpDrary  loans  and  object  movements.  This  function  en- 
tails preparing  complete  documentation  of  every  object  along  with  maintaining 
location  control.  The  Registrars  are  also  responsible  for  scheduling  and  super- 
vising physical  art  object  movement. 

While  registration  duties  used  to  be  assigned  according  to  building,  the  Regis- 
trars have  found  that  a more  logical  division  of  labor  is  to  divide  responsibili- 
ties between  permanent  collection  and  temporary  exhibitions.  Cceprehensive 
catalog  information  for  the  Moseums ' permanent  collection  is  now  housed  at  the 
M.H.  de  Young  Ifemorial  Fiiseum  Tdiile  the  California  Palace  of  the  Legion  of  Honor's 
registration  office  holds  comprehensive  exhibition  files  for  past  and  current 
exhibitions.  These  reorganized  records  should  be  physically  integrated  into  one 
library  system  for  staff  and  public  information  as  soon  as  possible.  Estimates 
for  microfilm  and  cenputerization  have  been  obtained,  and  the  department  awaits 
funding  for  this  most  urgent  need.

The  two  major  ejdiibitions  "The  Splendor  of  Dresden"  and  "The  Treasures  of 
Tutankhamun"  were  the  main  focus  of  the  Registrars,  for  they  involved  the 
transportation  and  registration  of  almost  one  thousand  objects  loaned  to 
the  liiseums.  The  space  they  required  displaced  the  permanent  collection 
so  that  adequate  storage  accomiodations  became  a prime  concern. 

In  addition,  The  Fine  Arts  Museums  organized  and  circulated  two  exhibitions: 
"Masterpieces  of  French  Art"  and  "The  Art  of  Being  Huichol".  The  regis- 
tration responsibilities  involved  with  these  exhibitions  were  also  h^dled 
by  the  Registration  Department.  In  addition,  the  department  supervised  the 
transfer  of  the  John  D,  Rockefeller  3rd  gift  of  109  American  paintings  from 
New  York  to  San  Francisco. 


Library 

Ihe  library  of  The  Fine  Arts  Miseiins  is  located  in  the  M.H.  de  Young  Memorial 
Museim.  It  contains  twenty  thousand  volumes,  plus  numerous  sales  and  auction 
catalogs  and  hundreds  of  bound  periodicals. 

The  library  staff  consists  of  one  full-time  librarian  and  four  part-time 
volunteers . 

Last  year  the  librarian  answered  over  500  reference  questions  frcoi  the  public, 
by  telephone  and  by  letter.  In  1978-79  300  volumes  were  purchased  for  the 
Library,  and  363  volumes  were  received  as  gifts  or  on  exchange,  to  make  a 
total  of  663  volumes  added. 

Eighty  periodical  titles  are  currently  being  received.  Three  catalogs : 

Rodin  Drawings,  Four  Centuries  of  French  Drawings,  and  pie  Triunph  of  Humanism, 
were  sent  on  exchange  to  200  participating  museiins  and  libraries  . 

Because  of  lack  of  staff,  the  library  is  open  to  Moseum  staff  members  only. 


Publications 


During  the  fiscal  year  1978-79,  the  Publications  Department  completed  two 
major  volumes:  Art  of  the  Huichol  Indians,  co-published  with  Harry  N.  Abrams, 
Inc. , in  New  York  (November  1978)  , and  Acts  of  the  Tapestry  Symposium  (June 
1979).  Additionally,  the  brochure  Masterpieces  of  Fr^ch  Art  was  pi±>lished  to 
acconpany  the  Museums'  traveling  exhibitim  of  paintings  and  drawings  (December 
1978) , and  two  brochures  for  use  by  the  Development  Office  were  produced  (Ihe 
Corporate  Role  and  Your  Investment  in  the  Future  of  The  Fine  Arts  Museuns  of 
San  Francisco) . 

Planning  and  production  of  the  Museums'  first  published  Biennial  Report  began 
in  late  1978,  and  work  on  the  Apollo  magazine  issues  devoted  to  The  Fine  Arts 
Museums  of  San  Francisco,  originally  scheduled  for  publication  in  early  1979 
but  postponed  for  a year,  continued  to  be  a major  project.

Along  wit±i  format  planning  for  the  French  Paintings  and  European  Paintings 
(expanded  from  the  original  Flemish  Paintings  project)  , arrangements  for 
publication  of  a catalog  of  fans  and  a theater  and  dance  design  catalog 
began  taking  shape.  Finally,  first  steps  were  taken  toward  the  development 
of  a quarterly  publication  for  The  Miseum  Society  membership. 


Public  Programs 

The  Department  of  PL±)lic  Programs  has  increased  its  education  suppc)rt  of 
exhibitions,  both  permanent  and  tenporary,  since  last  year.  Synroosia, 
lectures  and  an  innovative  concert  program,  plus  special  children's  events 
were  among  the  programs  offered  vdiich  were  attended  by  62,928  people.  In 
order  to  reach  the  conraunity  more  effectively  and  to  extend  the  influence 
of  exhibitions,  the  department  has  presented  concerts  and  lecture  programs 
at  ccmnunity  sites  throughout  San  Francisco. 


Art  School 


The  M.H.  de  Young  Memorial  liiseum  Art  School  is  responsible  for  conducting 
programs  in  public  education  and  studio  art  techniques.  It  is  a nationally 
recognized  imseum  education  program  which  also  serves  as  a training  ground 
for  young  professionals  who  wish  to  pursue  careers  in  museum  education.  The 
department  is  staffed  by  two  curators , CETTA  personnel  and  museum  interns . 

In  the  fiscal  year  1978-79,  the  Art  School  conducted  four  programs;  1.  studio 
art  classes  at  the  de  Young  Itiseum;  2.  extension  services  to  schools  and  com- 
munity centers:  the  Trip-Out  Trucks;  3.  The  Fine  Arts  Maseums  of  San  Francisco 
Downtown  Center,  a branch  gallery  in  the  business  comnunity,  and,  4.  the  in- 
ternship program. 

1.  Art  School 


The  de  Young  Museum  Art  School  offers  low  cost  studio  art  classes  to  Bay  Area 
residents.  Classes  are  designed  to  relate  to  the  Museums'  collection  and  to 
encourage  patronage  and  understanding  of  traditional  art  forms  and  the  art  of 
past  cultures  as  well  as  contenporary  art  developments.  Over  one  hundred 
classes,  special  workshops  and  art-related  field  trips  are  offered  in  four 
quarterly  semesters.  The  school  is  a non-profit  corporation  and  is  sijqjported 
by  student  fees.  Several  of  the  artists  are  hired  through  the  Mayor's  Office

3.  Fine  Arts  Haseums  of  San  Francisco  Downtown  Center 

The  Downtown  Center,  established  in  1976,  is  a branch  gallery  of  the  Museums 
located  in  the  business  comiiunity.  During  the  fiscal  year  1978-79,  the  Down- 
town Center 'was  staffed  by  the  de  Young  ILiseum  Art  School  and  provided  a 
training  center  for  the  Rockefeller/National  Endowment  for  the  Arts  interns. 

The  Center  provides  exhibition  and  education  programs  for  the  business  com- 
munity at  Three  Embarcadero  Center,  where  it  relocated  in  August  1978.  Ten 
exhibitions  and  related  programs  were  offered  during  this  fiscal  year  which 
had  an  attendance  of  over  100,000  people. 

On  April  5,  1979,  the  Board  of  Trustees  voted  to  discontinue  the  Downtown 
Center.  However,  after  a great  deal  of  comiiunity  interest  in  retaining  the 
Center  was  esqiressed,  the  Trustees  reconsidered  their  decision  on  June  7, 
1979,  and  voted  to  keep  the  Center.  At  this  tine,  a split  in  financial  ac- 
countability between  the  de  Young  liiseum  Art  School  and  the  Downtown  Center 
was  recomnended.  Coinnencing  with  the  fiscal  year  1979-80,  the  FAIiSF  DTC 
funds  will  be  administered  through  the  FM  Foundation. 

4.  Intern  Training  Program 

The  museum  internship  program  is  funded  by  the  Rockefeller  Foundation  and 
the  National  Endowment  for  the  Arts.  The  curricultm  is  designed  to  train 
persons  in  the  field  of  museum  education  and  to  place  these  persons  in  po- 
sitions throughout  the  liiited  States.  Nine  persons  were  participants  in 
the  program  this  year:  Israel  Alcanter,  Michael  Milligan,  Jose  Iferia  Bustos, 
Gail  Gorton,  Susan  Rare,  Lori  Starr,  Jess  McElroy,  Anne  Wilson,  and  Cleveland 
Bellow. 


Docent  Council 


The  Docents  are  a select  and  highly  trained  groip  of  men  and  wcmen  who  give 
time  to  conduct  tours  of  the  permanent  collections  of  the  Asian  Art  Museum  and 
The  Fine  Arts  Museums  for  the  public  on  a regular  and  continuing  basis.  In 
addition,  tours  of  special  exhibitions  are  given  by  request  on  special  topics, 
to  the  deaf,  to  the  handicapped,  and  of  course,  to  school  children.  Workshops 
are  offered  for  teachers  to  enable  them  to  conduct  a better  museum  visit  with 
their  classroom.  Programs  are  carried  out  in  conjunction  with  the  appropriate 
museum  Education  Department. 

Highlights  of  the  past  year  include: 

1.  Coordination  of  the  visual  format  of  letterhead,  roster  and  bulletin  in  line 
WTith  the  museum  "look". 

2.  Publication  of  monthly  Bulletin  of  future  events.

Interpretation 

The  activities  of  the  Department  of  Interpretation  have  expanded  greatly  this 
year  due  to  our  extensive  exhibition  schedule  and  the  enlargement  of  our  school 
and  comnunity  outreach  programs.  Docents  continued  to  be  used  as  guides  through- 
out the  Mjseums  and  also  visited  schools,  delivered  slide- illustrated  ccoinunity 
lectures,  and  were  involved  in  our  programs  for  the  disabled.  Labels,  wall 
panels,  brochures,  audio-visual  presentaticris , and  recorded  tours  were  developed 
to  enhance  the  visitor's  imseum  experience.  Curriculum  packets,  slide  presen- 
tations, and  teacher's  workshops  oriented  teachers  and  students  to  our  special 
exhibitions,  and  several  methods  were  developed  to  make  our  collections  and 
ejdiibition  programs  accessible  to  the  disabled. 


Volunteer  Council 


The  special  exhibitions  "Splendor  of  Dresden"  and  "Treasures  of  TutankhamLin' ' 
challenged  and  motivated  The  Fine  Arts  Museums'  600  volunteers  in  1979,  re- 
sulting in  a paraprofessional  staff  of  dedicated  and  well-trained  miseun 
■workers.  About  500  volunteers  worked  about  15,000  hours  selling  admissicn

tickets  and  exhibition  catalogs,  dispensing  information,  and  working  in  the 
special  gift  shop  during  "Dresden".  For  the  exhibition  "Treasures  of 
TutankharaLin" , 460  volunteers  helped  disabled  visitors,  gave  out  information, 
monitored  school  group  tours,  and  answered  telephones  in  the  Tut  Office, 
working  approximately  5,000  hours  per  month. 

In  1978-79,  volunteers  provided  clerical  and  research  services  in  museum 
staff  offices,  worked  in  the  library,  repaired  tapestries  and  decorative 
art  objects,  sold  items  in  the  bookshops,  and  generally  filled  in  as  museum 
warkers  \dienever  needed.  Averaging  between  3,000  and  5,000  hours  per  month 
in  donated  time,  volunteers  gave  as  much  as  $300,000  in  labor  to  The  Fine 
Arts  Miseums  of  San  Francisco  in  1978-79. 


Adminis  trat ion 

The  activities  of  the  Adminis  trat  ion  Division  of  the  Museums  were  dominated 
during  fiscal  year  1978-79  by  the  administration  and  planning  of  major  ex- 
hibition budgets  as  well  as  the  daily  operations  of  a conplex  instituticn. 

Along  with  fiscal  management,  security  and  building  maintenance,  and  per- 
sonnel administration,  an  active  development  program  became  a vital  function 
of  this  division.  Due  to  Proposition  13,  the  Museums'  City  budget  reductico 
of  197o  underscored  the  need  to  secure  alternative  long  range  funding. 

Foundations  and  federal  agencies  are  two  inportant  sources  on  which  the  Museums 
increasingly  rely  for  support.  Grants  awarded  for  this  fiscal  year  included: 

Frcm  the  National  Endowment  for  the  Arts : 

$5,000  for  Purchase  of  Drawings  by  Living  Artists 

$250,000  HVAC:  Legion/ de  Young 

$13,000  Decorative  Arts  Projects  in  de  Young 

From  Other  Sources : 

$5,000  frcm  the  Institute  of  Miseim  Services  for  unrestricted  operations 
$5,684  frcm  the  San  Francisco  Foundation  for  adaptations  to  de  Young  for  the  blind 
$10,000  from  the  Hearst  Foundation  for  a feasibility  study:  reconstructing  the 
Spanish  Monastery 

$150,000  frcm  the  Irwin  Charity  Foundation  for  HVAC  at  the  Downtown  Center  and  the 
Legion 

$15,000  frcm  the  Hearst  Foundation  unrestricted 

During  this  report  period,  attendance  at  the  Museums  was  greatly  increased  due  to 
"Splendor  of  Dresden"  exhibited  at  the  Legion  of  Honor.  Attendance  for  this  ex- 
hibit alone  was  in  excess  of  550,000  frcm  February  to  June  1979.  Attendance  at 
the  de  Young  was  estimated  at  500,000. 

Major  renovation  of  both  Museum  buildings  took  place  during  this  reporting  period 
as  part  of  preparations  for  the  two  major  e^duibits  and  long  term  inprovement  plans. 
New  heating,  ventilating  and  air  conditioning  systems  were  installed  in  order  to 
bring  the  Museums  ip  to  acceptable  standards  for  the  safe  display  of  works  of  art.

Legion  of  Honor. 

The  Museum  Society  also  sponsors  the  Volunteer  Council  which  trains  and  organizes 
the  over  500  volunteers  who  staff  major  exhibitions  and  assist  in  many  other 
areas  of  the  Miseums.  The  Bookshops  at  the  de  Young  and  Legion  of  Honor  are 
LLiseum  Society  projects,  as  were  the  special  exhibition  shops  for  the  Dresden 
and  Tutarikhamun  ejdiibitions . The  Society  is  also  responsible  for  the  catering 
contracts  for  the  Cafe  de  Young  and  the  Cafe  Chanticleer.
